River of Silence

Yellowstone National Park
Wyoming, USA

I was stuck in traffic the other morning on my way into the studio.  Radio off.  I took a detour and ended up at the museum looking at monochromatic images from masters of the 17th century, I was in awe.  Some of those pieces instill such emotion.

Standing along side the river just as dawn awoke the landscape around me, there was a silence and peace that to this day I am hard pressed to describe to anyone else.  Trying to explain the feeling that this image evokes is doubtful, for me at least.  Maybe, most certainly, your vocabulary is larger than mine and therefore you probably can and likely better than me.

Send me a letter when you're able to put it into words OK.

See Ya On the Trail!
