Winter Silence and Solitude At Yellowstone
Sunday 28 October 2012   —   Category: Books & Mags


For decades, one of my primary self-​identities has been that I’m a person who loves silence and solitude. That is the core of who I am. For just as long, I have also loved cold weather. If the tem­per­a­ture was never to rise above 60°F, that would be OK by me!

As I shared in a previous article, in Feb­ru­ary 2013 I will be on a five-day, snow­mobile photography outing in Yel­low­stone National Park. So when I recently ran across a photo book entitled Silence & Solitude: Yellowstone’s Winter Wil­der­ness, by Tom Murphy, I knew I just had to buy a copy!
[Tom’s] photographic passion and specialty is Yellowstone National Park. Since 1975 he has traveled extensively within its 3400 square miles, hiking thousands of miles and skiing on hundreds of extended overnight trips in the backcountry.... Through Wilderness Photography Expeditions, which he established in 1986, Tom built an internationally respected photography seminar series teaching natural history pho­tog­ra­phy primarily in Yellow­stone Park....

Tom was the first person licensed to lead photography tours in Yellow­stone Park.... His second book, The Light of Spring: The Seasons of Yellowstone, his third book The The Comfort of Autumn, and his fourth book, The Abundance of Summer, are three of a set of books, [together with his first book,] illustrating the four seasons of Yellowstone.
This book is really inspiring me for my upcoming winter outing in Yellowstone, and giving me glimpses of all I have to look forward to. If, like me, you are a lover of silence, solitude and winter, Mr. Murphy’s book may be a great inspiration to you as well!
