Wild Yellowstone – Day 1 (London to Jackson Hole)

Well, I’m off again on another photo trip to the US. This trip takes me back to the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, but this will be my first in summer. The long range weather forecast is excellent. So, I expect some nice images.

Normally, I don’t get an opportunity to take any pictures when traveling, but flight times for this trip meant that we would be sitting around Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport for 6 hours. This gave me plenty of time to photograph the tunnel that links concourses B and C in Terminal 1.  This concourse is home to the largest light sculpture in the world. Entitled ‘Sky’s the Limit’, it is composed of 466 neon tubes, that would stretch over a mile long, if laid end to end. It runs the entire length of the ceiling above two moving walkways, and is composed of white sections on either end with a rainbow of colours in between. I’ve been through it over a dozen times in as many years, but this was my first opportunity to photograph it.
