Yellowstone National Park
Many people visit Yellowstone to see Old Faithful Geyser erupt. Few witness the geyser eruption into a full moon. Image "Old Faithful Geyser plume cloud into a full moon" captures the sequence of eruption into a full moon in September, 2011. Individual photographs are available. Write us for details. We also utilized the haze conditions to capture the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone just after sunrise. The haze brought out the reds in the rocks. The fire's smoke also brought reds at sunset in an area removed from the fire, West Thumb thermal basin which looks over Yellowstone Lake, but was on the same side as the fire with winds pushing most of the smoke to the opposite direction. There was enough haze to create the intense red hues in the thermal pool image.
Few visitors see a forest fire in Yellowstone. The image entitled "Yellowstone Lake Forest Fire at Sunset" captures the magnificent hues displayed as the sun was filtered by haze from the fire. Reflections in the lake make this image standout. The night time views of the forest fire under a full moon illuminating mountains and clouds are stunning. The smoke and haze rose to an elevation that did not block out the full moon and reflections in Lake Yellowstone.

Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park is located in the northwest part of Montana. Photos of this national park feature scenery shot from locations along the Going-to-the-Sun Road including Lake McDonald, St. Mary Lake, Wild Goose Island, Sunrift Gorge, Jackson Glacier and Hidden Lake Trail leading to Clements Mountain at 8760 feet elevation. Glacier fed lakes, streams and waterfalls are stunning when set in front of mountains and mountain passes filled with glaciers.
Honoring the memory of Elmer Bernstein with the Magnificent 7 Sound track- his music inspired me as an artist in taking these images.
