Greater Yellowstone In Monochrome
All pictures here were taken during the summers of 2015 and 2016 in an area in which my family has spent every summer since 2001. These were shot almost exclusively using the Leica Monochrom, which takes images only in black and white. Somehow, these seem to capture the environment in a form equal to the drama of the landscape. Most of the pictures were taken in Jackson Hole, the valley between the Tetons and the rock formation locals call the Sleeping Indian, though some were taken along the Beartooth Highway, which enters Yellowstone National Park from the northeast corner, perhaps 150 miles from Jackson, but in the same broad ecosystem.
