Yellowstone Mist - Two Versions

Seeing Double

After recently publishing an article on doing winter photography in Yellowstone National Park I received an e-mail from photographer Mark Meyer pointing me to a page on his web site where he has on display a remarkably similar photograph.

I suppose that if there had been tripod holes we could not have taken this shot from more exactly the same position. We even both used Pentax 67 cameras.

Of greater interest than this coincidence is how similar yet how different these images are. I often write about the importance of light in determining how a photograph will appear. In this case the position of the sun played a big role in making this scene appear as differently as it does.

I thought that you might enjoy comparing these two images as much as I did. Nothing more profound than that.
