Barnes’ first trip to Wyoming was an amazing experience. Wildlife is everywhere. Great mountains rise over the surrounding lakes. Bison graze the fields as they have done for 1000s of years there.
However ‘Road to Nowhere’ depicts the transition from day to night. Dramatic clouds began to roll in over and through the Grand Tetons’ mountaintops as he drove from a sunset shoot to his cabin and he realized this was a special and unique moment. Capturing the quiet, calming change from day to night with the incredible storm clouds that were rolling in at the time created a perfect balance in this image. Barnes applied an electric-like filter to the finished product to add contrast and drama to the scene. This will be the first of many trips to the region for Barnes and this image will always be a special memory to him capturing the mood of soothing Wyoming with the power of mother nature in perfect harmony.
