• 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 […]


  • August 2017 print of the month

    This month’s print of the month is part of a breakthru series of images I created at White Sands National Monument in southeast New Mexico, outside of Alamogordo. “Breakthru” means one of those “ah-ha” moments when the light turns on and a new way of seeing or understanding happens. My time at White Sands was […]


  • a day on the south rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison

    Since the last post (actually overnight in real life) a snow front moved in. Low clouds, no sunrise, grey and featureless clouds met me as I got up early to go to the south rim. No one was there, except a ranger who told me that there were no fees because of the off-season. I […]


  • July 2017 print of the month

    This month’s print comes from a fall expedition to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. The Black Canyon is a dizzying 2000 foot deep canyon carved along a fault by the Gunnison River. Much like the Grand Canyon, traveling from the south rim to the north rim requires at least 60+ miles and 2-3+hours. I […]


  • Mono Lake, California

    Mono Lake in the eastern Sierra Mountains of California is at the western edge of the Great Basin. It is a salt lake, like the Great Salt Lake in Utah, which is on the eastern edge of the Great Basin. The Great Basin is a large basin of land that has no outlet for its […]


  • Slot Canyon walls

    As you wander down slot canyons and arroyos, you will often see hundreds of millions of years of earth’s history carved by the sand, wind, and waters. It makes one feel quite small. Yet the complexity of the years displays a remarkable beauty. Over the hundred of thousands of years the deposition of the sands […]


  • May 2017 print of the month

    This print again shows the magnitude, movement in stillness, and color of Upper Antelope Canyon. Light shafts occur less than 30 minutes each day. So being there was a special experience. In this case, the light shaft was illuminated by sand and dust being blown from above and not by the guide throwing sand into […]


  • April 2017 print of the month

    They have been called the “traveling rocks” or “sailing rocks”. They reside at the Racetrack in eastern Death Valley National Park. It is a good 3+ hours from Furnace Creek, and 1 1/2 hours of which is high clearance, 4-wheel drive road. It is 26 miles from the highway turnoff. I took my upgraded 4-Runner, […]


  • March 2017 print of the month

    The current Antelope Canyon milieu is completely different from when I came here in 2010. (I will post more specifics when I talk about slot canyon I and II projects.) The Upper and Lower Canyons are so well known that there are as many as 12-15+ truckloads of visitors viewing the canyon at any one […]
