Adventures of a Wildlife Photographer - "The Big Bang"

August 7, 2014

Photo by Rocky Holland – Mt. Saint Helens as it appears today. Thirty-four years after it literally, “blew its top.”

As a nature photographer I’ve always wanted to photograph the forces of nature that surrounds our daily lives. Although destructive and very much life threatening, I have always wanted to photograph a tornado. Some images I have seen are quite scary, yet beautiful at the same time. My ideal image would be a giant funnel cloud in an open and unpopulated farm area in the Midwest. I might not ever get to witness such a sight, but if I ever do, I want it to be without any damage or loss of lives, especially mine! My other quest is to photograph an active volcano, but from a very safe distance. Living here in the east, the chances of finding one of those volcanoes might be very rare! In June, I had the chance to visit a formerly active volcano in the state of Washington, called Mount St. Helens.
