Turner's ever-watchful lens has isolated remarkable instants in time – when light upon the land intensifies color to almost magical proportions. Above, 'Clearing Storm in the Bristlecones.'

The Harvard Museum of Natural History is presenting ‘Robert Turner: Rare Places in a Rare Light.’ This traveling exhibition, which opens on Saturday (Nov. 5), features the richly detailed images of wild American landscapes by fine art landscape photographer Turner. Drawing upon 20 years of experience in film, Turner has assembled a stunning collection of images.’Last Light on the Canyon Rim’From the Pacific Northwest to the Great Smoky Mountains and the canyon lands of the Colorado Plateau to the hardwood forests of Maine, this exhibition captures both the grandeur and intimacy of North America’s precious wild lands. Turner’s large-format photos communicate the moods of rare moments, both intimate and grand, captured across the continent.’Morning Mist Rising’- Robert Turner will talk about his career in fine art photography and the critical need for us to learn about and conserve our nation’s wild places at the HMNH 3 p.m. Friday (Nov. 4) and 9:30 a.m. Saturday (Nov. 5).
