The Big Sky

In August of 1994 I was driving through an intense storm on Highway 141 near Avon, Montana.  Suddenly the setting sun dropped into a gap between the clouds and the horizon and lit up the clearing storm with the most incredible light I'd ever seen.  I pulled over, set up my camera and tripod, composed a scene with the rainbow and clouds, and clicked away.  As the ball of the sun set below the horizon, the light got more orange.  I just kept clicking, hoping to get an image with lightning.  I shot about a roll of film and got a few shots with lightning.  This was the best frame.  It was my first nationally published photograph.  "Outside" magazine published it in 1995.  Nikon 35mm camera.  Fuji Velvia film.

  • ABOUT THE PRINTS

    Metal prints use a special new process where ink is infused into a coating on glossy aluminum.  This creates a luxury print with three dimentional depth and luminance. These prints are fade resistant, water resistant and have amazing detail.  Metal prints come with a flush mount metal frame with a dark pewter color.  Larger sizes and other framing options are available.  Please contact me for a quote.  These prints can be made up to 96 inches in the long dimension.
