Exhibition Notes:

The 100+ photographs included in this exhibition were all made during a 5-day stretch snowshoeing, hiking and snow-motoring around Yellowstone National Park during the middle of wintertime 2019 (February 11 to February 15) when all of us there mindfully making the most of a record wintery season in that part of the Rocky Mountains were graced with more than 40 inches of fresh new powder. My experience depicting this photographic extreme and what it must have been like to have been at that place during such ruggedly weathered times was shared with best friend Kim of Lawrence USA, and 11 new friends from all over the place (well, from San Diego to the Netherlands, anyway!); Barbara, Mary Ellen, Johanna, Gerald, Sue, Fia and Eric; our naturalist guide Chad; our snow coach driver Ible; and John, who made the group photo attached below, the only one mentioned above not part of that picture…

We were all “lucky” to have been at that enviable place together in that wicked snowbound circumstance, but what is “luck” – – – after all, they say – – – except when preparation meets opportunity, and magic occurs…
