In the years between his first and second trips to Paris (1902–7) Steichen established his reputation not only as a portraitist but also as an artist who could tackle in photography the traditional subjects of painting and rival the older medium in scale, color, and expressiveness. His image of the Flatiron Building, The Pond—Moonlight, The Big White Cloud, Lake George, and Chestnut Blossoms all date from this period. Storm in the Garden of the Gods is among his most dramatic and expressive images, conveying the power of the landscape that he described in a letter to Stieglitz: "I managed to see a lot of Nebraska, Colorado, & New Mexico, and in a way feel it is one of the greatest things I have experienced—not so much from a pictorial standpoint [as from] the bigger standpoint of life. . . . Somehow since I have been west I almost regret going to Paris—or Europe."
