Exit Stage left

I have moved my blog to here,
for the future. The reason being it is much easier for me to blog my photos and am receiving a lot more visits from people there.

So come take a look at my new photo blog.

Trip down to Jackson, WY

Wow, it has been a while since my last post. Summer just keeps me busy.

Down in Yellowstone park I love taking pictures of the trees that have been burnt by the hot springs. The tones that occur are just amazing and fun to photograph.

Once I start doing ceramics again I will be trying to copy this into my work.

Trip down to Jackson, WY through Yellowstone and Teton Park part 2

Once you get into the geyser basin part of Yellowstone park you are able to walk out on elevated boardwalks over the many different hot springs, geysers, mud pots, etc.

I always find myself drawn to the trees that have been burnt by the geothermal events. The transitions from an almost bone type color to deep brown blacks. Very intriguing.

This photo is of a tree stumps that have been mostly bleached out.

Trip down to Jackson, WY through Yellowstone and Teton Park part 1

My wife and I drove on down to Jackson, WY a few weeks ago. Had a great time and immensely enjoyed both Yellowstone and Teton Parks. Just amazing.

Well I grabbed a few photos along the way.

This first part is from Yellowstone park not far from the city of West Yellowstone. I pulled off into the viewing area because I thought I saw a moose. But, that just turned out to be a log in the grass.

All was for not because across the Madison River was a skeleton of a Bison. Pretty cool.

The Bitter root

My wife and I got over to the nursery yesterday. While browsing we came across some bitter roots. This is the Montana state flower. I very pretty small plant with rather large blooms. I thought it looks similar to a blood root.

So we purchased a couple, one that is blooming now and another that is about to bloom. I had to take some photos of them.
