After getting back from our trip and going through and post-processing the images that I captured, I wasn't sure how best to break things up so that it didn't all end up in one humongous blog post. I've decided to break things up by subject. This first post will contain more of a mix of different kinds of images.
On the way to Yellowstone, we spent a night at Craters of the Moon National Monument. Here are a couple of images taken there. I like the color and feeling of this image.
The setting sun interacted with clouds to produce some nice views.
We did see a fair number of elk (especially in Mammoth Village), but the main action of the rut seemed to be over. Many of the elk appeared to be in the middle of the fall molt.
During the first evening in the park we found this Canada Goose just standing in the middle of the Madison River.
We also spotted this Trumpeter Swan.
On one of our stops, this raven was sure we would feed him something and was obviously used to humans.
