Foster Reservoir
Craig Law, ‘Foster Reservoir, Fall,’ 1990, toned gelatin silver print, 11 7/16 x 17 7/8 inches. Brigham Young University Museum of Art, 2001.<br>

Retired professor of photography from Utah State University, Craig Law has spent decades documenting Western landscapes, such as this one of Foster Reservoir, located near Preston, Idaho. The silvery hue of this black and white photograph matches the feeling of this scene; the barren trees, empty fields, and snow in the mountains suggest the transition from fall into winter. One can almost feel the chill in the air.
