My image is of the hot springs at Mammoth Springs, Yellowstone NPS.
While most think of Yellowstone as 'big' - big geysers, big hot springs, big valleys, I wanted to see it in the details. I wanted to see it up close. This piece is of the terraced layers of calcium left behind as the hot waters flow out of the hot spring. The form terraces as the amount of water ebbs and flows. This is a close up of those terraces that can be less than a half of an inch tall but together form a structure that is over 100' high.
They colors in the image are caused by the thermophilic bacteria and the play of the light and the water.
I found that metal, with its reflective properties, to be the perfect medium for this image. It is printed on aluminum with a high gloss finish to mimic the reflective quality of the water.
I love rural decay as much as urban decay - but there is more sadness in rural decay. While both represent dreams that have died, rural decay is deeper and more heartbreaking due to the feeling of being forgotten. I carry my camera most places and south and west New Jersey is ripe with falling down barns.

PROFESSIONAL WOMEN PHOTOGRAPHERS
December 9-20, 2014
Opening reception December 11, 5-8pm
Professional Women Photographers is presenting Small Wonders, an exhibition highlighting the distinctive qualities of the smaller image, which draws the observer into a more intimate relationship with the photograph. Unlike a larger image, which creates the need to physically distance oneself from the piece, the smaller image insists that the viewer get up close and personal with the photograph. This reveals the tiniest detail while at the same time allowing the entire image to be perceived in a single view. Small Wonders may be small in dimension but is large in theme, its expression revealing the varied aesthetics of its members. PWP is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of women photographers since 1975.
