I took this photo a year ago while I was living in Redlands, a small town in Southern California. The whole day was very surreal – a couple friends and I drove deep into the desert to visit Salvation Mountain, an enormous handmade shrine in the middle of nowhere. When the sun began to set we drove home down a straight, flat road; the kind that wavers on the horizon like a hallucination no matter how long you’ve been driving. I was in the back seat fiddling with my camera when I looked up and saw smoke billowing from the side of the road. We slowed, turned our heads in unison, and drove on silently. We couldn’t tell what had happened, but for me this photo (made with a 35mm Canon Rebel Ti) retains the strange tension of that moment.

Tell us something about this picture

This photo is from our honeymoon trip to the Canadian Rockies in June of 2007 – in this particular scene, we are enjoying a morning of paddling on Lake Louise.

Nearly six years later, I recall this scene by its contrasts. The lake and air were very calm that morning – visually, our eyes were leaping back and forth from these static, level waters to the dynamic peaks and icefields above – audibly, we had a quiet solitude through the calm of the lake divide abruptly by these immense sounds of ice breaking off the glaciers and falling several hundred feet in the basin above. At that point in my life, I had not heard a glacier calve off ice. I had thought all beauty to be harmonic, but this sound was anything but that – it was a very violent and unsettling sound that left a strong impression on me. At the center of all of this sat my wife in front of me – a source of stability through the highs, lows and contrasts of life.

For many years, I was hesitant to share this photo – I had a difficult time looking past what I saw as technical flaws and seeing the image for what it is, rather than what it isn’t. Along the way, something changed.

The slide is on Ektachrome 64 through a Canon Rebel K2 with a 50mm f1.8 Canon lens.
