Male Pronghorn Antelope
Eye on the Prize
A male Pronghorn Antelope keeps a careful eye on the love of his life, who waits patiently for his inevitably amorous advance.

Female Elk Finishes Her Lunch at the West Thumb Thermal Area
Raven Takes Wing
A snow storm suddenly blew down the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. For a while, a raven perched itself atop a hoo-doo just below the viewpoint of the canyon. Eventually, it decided to find a more hospitable location, and after making this photograph, I headed for my own sanctuary, in our van.

My brother Dan traveled with me. To view his Yellowstone images, go

In the Eye of the Raven
My brother is a patient photographer. Employing his method allowed me to approach close enough to photograph the reflection of our van in the raven's eye.

The Hunter and the Hunted- Bridger National Forest
Carl Jung posited the concept of a collective unconscious - the idea that humans can not only create and retain memories, but that certain kinds of memories are with us from birth, passed down as unconscious concepts that we draw upon to understand the world around us. One of those archetypical memories includes the Hunter. For sport, for food, humans have indeed probably hunted since we became human.

We found this hunter, walking with the head of the elk he'd killed, walking back to his camp along Fall Creek Road.
Reflect on Where Civilization and Wilderness Meet

Rick MacIntyre, Wolf Biologist
When you want to find a wolf, find Rick. You shall know this ranger by his yellow vehicle, in which he carries the tools of his trade, including his spotting scopes, binoculars, and an antenna (to pick up signals from wolves wearing radio-transmitter collars). Here Rick is unwittingly posing - in reflection - for his portrait while out looking for wolves near Mammoth Hot Springs.

Figure in the Mist
We photographed a variety of human beings in silhouette as they wandered through the mists near a variety of geysers and thermal pools.

Harvest Season, Willard, Utah
Cowboy and His Horse, Alpine Wyoming
There are still cowboys working in the Western United States, including this one, whom I photographed at a gas station in the little community of Alpine, along the Snake Rive.

At Mammoth Hot Springs
Yellowstone was for a long while known as Wonderland. It's easy to understand why that was so at places in the park like Mammoth Hot Springs.

Sunrise Over Yellowstone
The sun, rising at dawn behind a ridge east of the Upper Geyser Basin, illuminates a steam cloud.

Dawn Over the Firehole River
Was it worth waking early to view sunrise over the Fire Hole River and the Upper Geyser basin? I'll let you be the judge.

Gardiner, Montana
We spent a couple of nights in Gardiner, just north of the Yellowstone Park entrance, at the comfortable Absaroka Motel; I made this photograph from the back porch of my room.

North Entry Gate, Yellowstone National Park
This year's trip to Yellowstone included one major component, in addition to the wildlife, geysers and landscapes we encountered: some heavy weather. Each day we seemed to enjoy the extremes of bright sunlight, dramatically cloudy skies, and even snow.
