The trail back up from Kalaloch Beach 4 in Olympic National Park, Washington
I’ve been a little more prolific than usual, with my writing, and the National Parks Traveler has published another Photography In The National Parks article for this month. This article deals with creating a theme from your national park photos. As you can see from the image above, a favorite theme of mine deals with leading lines made from trails I’ve hiked. To read the article, click on the image above.
A bacterial vein leading from a geothermal pool at Biscuit Basin, Yellowstone National Park
During my road trip move from Texas to central Washington, I stopped off for a couple of days at Yellowstone National Park … in August …
While summer in this national park is filled with great weather, it’s also filled with crowds, crowds, crowds. To the point where parking is slim-to-none. Luckily for me, I did manage to snag a parking spot at Biscuit Basin, and began to explore and enjoy the first day of my first visit to America’s first national park.
Bacterial mats and veins trailing from hot springs made bright, colorful leading lines, like the one in this photo here.
I’m heading back to Yellowstone in the fall, when – I hope – crowds will be fewer and I’ll find more parking spaces at places I never got to see during my first visit.

I like road shots. They make for great leading lines to lead the eye toward the main subject: freedom and what awaits beyond.
Do you have some of your own road shots? Where have those roads led you?
