The artist informed us, as she provided the following medley of images, that "this was the hardest submission yet!" The challenge is that the Magpie sets an arbitrary limit for the quantity of images, 8. In meeting that objective, the artist must choose from her own favorites, and in effect, kill her own darlings. So, what did she do? She put the onus back on us by submitting twice the limit, and in doing so, doubled the drugery of a difficult task.
And you know what? It ain't easy, but it is something to behold.

Quick as a small stick snapping in the forest, our wonderful little run through Montana via the lens of j. scarson photography comes to an end... and we at the Magpie find ourselves with yet another difficult task, finding a photographer in the area who's willing to follow this great body of work!
Thanks, Jill, for three fantastic months at the Focal Point helm. -TBM
