storm over ‘old faithful’

Storm Over 'Old Faithful'

returning to vancouver from toronto, i opted to drive the whole way back through the northern united states. i spent a day touring yellowstone national park, home of the world-famous old faithful geyser – aptly named so because it erupts at relatively steady intervals.

it had been a splendid early fall day in october as i awaited the next eruption… the sun was progressively disappearing as a storm started to push through. dejected that the weather was changing for my one and only opportunity to photograph this wonder, i half-heartedly started shooting when old faithful finally blew its steam. when it had finished, i returned to the car and kept on my way through the rest of the road back to the campsite.

it would be a couple of weeks before i got my slides back – imagine my surprise when i witnessed the scene as it had been captured – i fell in love with this shot!

cabin on the pond

Cabin On The Pond

exploring the area just north of yellowstone national park, i ended up on some gravel roads in the back-country hills. this scene came up as i made my way up to what would be a surreal experience… further on up i came into this strange hamlet with a few old shacks and trucks. there was an eerie silence as the sun was going down – most memorable was the rather large man sitting on his stoop, staring at me as i drove by… i was definitely far away from home!

the sun was going down in the west as i captured this. what you are seeing is the sun’s natural colour reflecting off the trees on this sepia-toned image.
