Moving Landscapes: Jim Jones' American West 

I’ve always been in love with the American West and with our national parks. I was fortunate to visit the Badlands, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks for two weeks in July and August. I converted many of my images to black and white — I love this look for a couple reasons. First, it lets me highlight contrasts, shapes and lighting within the frame. Second, black and white images have a timeless look to them; they could have been captured yesterday, or in the early part of the twentieth century – so they age well.

I hope you enjoy these images, and the information I’ve shared in the captions. Click any photo to view it larger, and to scroll through the gallery horizontally. To see more of my work, please visit my website at
