On the cover: “Autumn on the Gallatin” by Tim Leonhardt. As Director of Product at Schedulicity.com, Tim works with bright, creative people every day. He expresses his own creativity through his photography, and counts himself blessed to be living and working in the Gallatin Valley. He captured this fall photo of the Gallatin from River Road last autumn. “I love the light we get in the fall - glorious sunsets, changing colors. Fall is my favorite time to shoot photography.” View Tim’s blog and photography at www.timleonhardt.com and http://images.timleonhardt.com2
