Twilight At Lava Creek

Jill Rahn's picture
As collectors of 19th century American paintings, my wife and I are very familiar with the wonderful twilight paintings of Frederic Church, Albert Bierstadt, Jasper Cropsey, Samuel Colman, and Jervis McEntee. While touring Grand Teton National Park in the fall of 2009 we passed by the overlook to Lava Creek on numerous occasions and stopped to determine the possibility for a good panoramic shot. I took several over the course of a few days but was not satisfied with the lighting conditions.

On the way to dinner one night shortly after sunset we once again stopped at the overlook and found the light to be just right, with the colorful sky partly reflected in the water. As I was shooting I kept thinking as to how Frederic Church or Albert Bierstadt might approach this scene.

Covering all of the tips and

Covering all of the tips and techniques for using a chainsaw safely and maintaining it in safe working order is far beyond the scope of a single article, of course. There is also the need of protection from the chainsaw itself. here It was probably inevitable that eventually the wood-cutting speed, power and control of the chainsaw would be harnessed to sculptural ends. This guard is designed to protect your right hand should the chain break or derail.
