With snow amounts heavy in […]

Yellowstone’s Winter Wonderland

These images were made near/along the Firehole River, as we neared the Old Faithful area. This area has a lot of thermal pools and geysers in the area and thus […]

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!

The Crossing, Revisited

When I was in Yellowstone this past February, […]

Merry Christmas!

On this Christmas Day, I’m featuring a couple of images I made a couple of years ago on a winter photo trip to Yellowstone National Park. This first image was made in Gardiner, Montana, just outside Yellowstone National Park. During the evening twilight, we found a spot overlooking Gardiner and set up to shoot some […]
