Devil’s Tower at Night, Part 1

Capturing daytime images of the Devil’s Tower (Devil’s Tower in Daylight post) was awesome, but capturing the landscape with astrophotography was such a “rush” for me! I have always wanted to learn how to properly expose and capture decent astrophotography images, particularly star trails, meteor showers, and the Milky Way. Fortunately, I was able to […]

Devil’s Tower by Daylight

Today’s post is the first of several I will publish on my recent trip to the Devil’s Tower National Monument, located in northeastern Wyoming. This trip was part of a photography workshop I was attending, hosted by the Rocky Mountain School of Photography (where I studied, once I left my corporate job in 2007). The […]

Another favorite archived post, from Yellowstone NP in the winter … Having traveled to Yellowstone recently, I felt I had to post some of the obligatory images of bison with snow on their faces … the iconic images a lot of us picture when we hear “Yellowstone in the winter”. With snow amounts heavy in […]

So Cold, It Almost Feels Like …

… Yellowstone’s West Thumb area, in February! After the last 24 hours, I was beginning to think I was once again in Yellowstone in the winter, where the temperatures can dip well below 0 degrees F! This post was first published 3 years ago, after a weeklong photo trip to Yellowstone National Park. But with […]

The Crossing, Revisited

(This post originally published in November 2011) As we drove through Hayden Valley (Yellowstone National Park) in the early morning, we were able to catch bison crossing the Yellowstone River:     Seeing the bison in early fall is quite different than in the peak of winter. When I was in Yellowstone this past February, […]

Jousting for Fun

Shortly after crossing the Yellowstone River, the younger bison were having quite a time … the young calves were running and jumping about, and the yearlings and young bulls were congregating in small groups and “jousting”, or “playfighting”, with others of their age. This playfighting is common among many mammals and is a way of […]

Almost missed this one while hiking around Yellowstone National Park! I was just returning to the parking lot area from a hike down a steep trail to view the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River. As I approached the parking lot, I noticed something that looked unusual … couldn’t quite identify what it was, but […]
