Yellowstone Lake - Nature's Way

Posted by

Looking Eastward, across Yellowstone lake through the trees burned during the 1988 fires. As a natural process, and due to the ferocity of the fires, many areas were allowed to "burn through," a controversial move back then and even now to a somewhat lesser extent. This method is being followed more in recent years, as it is more akin to the natural progression of nature's course. As can be seen, new growth has been making a very strong return, thanks to the richer, ash-laden soil, and the additional light allowed for the saplings. For the most part, it's Nature's Way!

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
