Flatness To The Beauty

This image of the plains of Wyoming was made on a road trip to Grand Teton National Park in the summer of 2009.

I made this photograph as my wife was driving the car about 70 mph down I-25 heading toward Jackson Hole, WY.

I was awestruck by the great variety of beauty on this stretch of drive. If you looked west, you could begin to see the Teton Range in the distance. Looking east, it was as flat as could be... for miles on end. As beautiful as the mountains were to the west, there was also great beauty to the east.

I found the clouds especially interesting and so I decided to make several shots as the car sped down the road.

For me, this image represents the understanding that nature’s beauty does not only reside in its mountains and streams.
