Today’s post features some more images I captured in late February in Yellowstone National Park (Wyoming).

2015 Faves, Part 1

In the next few posts, I’ll share my favorite outings, trips and images that I captured in 2015. I will not rank them, as pulling a few “best” images out of thousands I captured this year is a difficult task alone; ranking them would probably be next to impossible! But one trip did stand out […]
