Buffalo from Tom Murphy's book "Silence and Solitude"

Exquisite excess in the act of survival captivates the imagination of naturalist, photographer and author Tom Murphy.


Murphy’s curiosity and gratitude for nature are exposed and expressed in his photographs and writing, which has appeared in National Geographic, Newsweek, Audubon and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and is evident in this picture of three bison crusted with ice, their frozen coats illustrating how well the hair insulates them.


Murphy wrote in his 2002 book "Silence and Solitude: Yellowstone's Winter Wilderness," that “a natural place of solitude gives us the opportunity to see and value our place in this world and … patience to wait for the unexpected.”


Now the nation's oldest national park, a place of rare beauty and near impossible discoveries, is threatened by climate change.
