Yellowstone Art Museum Auction Exhibition

Friday evening was the opening reception for the 2020 Yellowstone Art Museum Art Auction in Billings, MT. This photo is me with one of the three composite photographs of mine that were accepted for the auction this year. One of my pieces, Escher in Yellowstone (shown below), was in the group that were available for bid and sale on Friday evening only. The one shown above, titled Ascending Tianmu Mountain in a Dream, and the third piece, Turner in Yellowstone (also below), are available for bid through March 7.

POTD: Ubehebe Morning #1

Ubehebe Morning #1
Death Valley, California
2019

Ubehebe Crater is one of my favorite spots in Death Valley. Both times I’ve been there it was early in the morning–a perfect time to get dramatic shots of high contrast scenes of the impressive geology there.

When I post composite photos like this one, I always indicate Bozeman as the location because that is where they are created. The components in the images can of course be from just about anywhere and at various times. In this case the Desert Bighorn Sheep are from my December trip to Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada, the petroglyph sheep from Utah about 15 years ago and the rock background from California a few years ago.

Every time I see this kind of puffy clouds in a blue sky–but especially in this scene because of the rock pinnacle–I think of the cover art on the album It’s a Beautiful Day from 1969. All my photo is missing is a woman on top of the pinnacle.

I just learned today that the album cover was based on (ripped off from?) the 1912 painting Woman on Top of a Mountain by Charles Courtney Curran.
