Robert Howell celebrates Yellowstone in a whole new light.


Yellowstone At Night™

Familiar daytime scenes are completely transformed with his use of starlight, moonlight and long exposures…

Yellowstone becomes otherworldly.  With technical expertise, planning and some good luck, Robert’s distinctive images speak to the numinous, mystical side of Yellowstone.




“ By the light of the moon, iconic landscapes and geysers are spellbinding.  The night invites you to pause and listen.  The stars gaze back and childhood memories of wonder are rekindled.  I believe others might connect with these moments in the same way.  And so, as an artist working in the medium of photography, I challenge myself to come back with images that convey the mystery and magic that deep down, we ‘know’ is out there.  


Scenes that, as Edward Abbey would say, ‘startle the senses, surprise the mind and compel us into a reawakened awareness of the wonderful.’ ”
