Yellowstone is a world beyond our own, emerging from the mists of time as a remnant of days long past. Here, the engines of creation still churn, steaming with all the fury of the gods of old. It is a place of deadly inspiration, and a window into the primitive soul of Earth.
Every year, I spend several weeks in Yellowstone, searching for a way to capture the hidden essence of this wondrous place. Each time I visit, I discover some new aspect of the park that I had missed before, some obscured facet that, when successfully captured by my camera's sensor, emerges to tell a new story about Yellowstone, and helps slowly but surely shape my picture of the whole.
With any luck—and perhaps with a few more visits—my photos will begin to tell the
story of this remarkable place, and evoke the day-to-day struggle for light and life in the wonderful landscape of Yellowstone.
