• south of Yellowstone

    Okay, I can’t leave Yellowstone National Park without a picture of some of the buffalo. I came upon a herd that clearly knew they owned the road. So I stopped and waited and waited and… This huge buffalo sauntered by about 10 feet from the car. I must say that it was one of the […]


  • storm clearing over Yellowstone Lake

    The gallery shows the Yellowstone River as it is leaving Yellowstone Lake, as well as some images of the overnight storm leaving the area. The angle of the early morning sun made for a sparkle in the water and trees that drew my eye, attention, and delight. I was headed south from Gardiner, Montana, through […]


  • a brief post about a small waterfall in the Park

    There seem to be a gozillion little turn-offs in Yellowstone National Park, some only one car wide and a few cars long. It also seems that it would take several months to stop at all of them and spend the time to truly appreciate where they lead. I have heard stories of Yellowstone being so […]


  • lower Yellowstone Falls and canyon

    After shooting the Mammoth Hot Springs series the previous afternoon and evening, I awoke and left scenic Gardiner, Montana, about 4 am and headed for the lower Yellowstone Falls to catch the sunrise. The road in the park was ridiculously icy as the storm overnight had dumped sleet and snow. So getting to the Falls […]


  • September 2017 print of the month

    This month’s print is the second print from my White Sands experience. These two images represent <1% of the total number of shots during my time there. I have heard it said that 1-3% of images taken (by advanced practitioners) are worthy of a fine art categorization. I was shooting with the sun coming up […]


  • Mammoth Hot Springs #4

    This small collection is about as impressionistic as I get (so far). However looking into the water as the overhead light changed made for some images that were more abstract and impressionistic. These pools seemed to draw one’s attention into its colors and depths. Several of them remind me of a contemporary painter named Cosmina, […]


  • blog vs. print of the month

    Several have asked why the blog posts are not in concert with the prints of the month. That is a very good question, so I felt like writing a brief post about the answer. Basically, there are two lines of conversation in my site. The blog posts are stories of my photographic journey. Sometimes they […]


  • Mammoth Hot Springs #3

    This collection shows a series of foreground-only images and shows the┬árange of subjects in the pools and area around the hot springs. This was a time in my journey when there was much less focus to my work. I returned here from farther down the road of learning and critique to reconstruct these images for […]


  • Mammoth Hot Springs #2

    Once you get above the ashen wasteland, the walkway levels out to show the land and vegetation creeping forward toward the springs. There are peculiar shapes and colors in and around the pools. Dead pools continue to show the ashen remnants of a once-life. Trees have died leaving their archetypal shape. There is a glimpse […]


  • Mammoth Hot Springs #1

    Mammoth Hot Springs in northern Yellowstone National Park is a truly weird place. Fascinating but weird. I did not even know it was there when I drove into the park, although I had heard of it sometime somewhere. I was staying the night in Gardiner, Montana, just north of the park and planned to go […]
