A Quick Visit To Yellowstone

It’s nearing the end of the fall season here in Yellowstone. The rut is near it’s end, the hotels, restaurants and stores are nearly all closed. There aren’t many visitors. It’s a peaceful time to be here.
We did get to see the Canyon wolf pack (through spotting scopes) on a kill. It’s good to know they are healthy and thriving. They have three pups this year. I can’t wait to see how they fare this winter and hopefully get some glass on them in the winter.

Every visit to Yellowstone provides new photographic opportunities and this trip is no exception. I did a five stop bracket using three of them to make an HDR at Mammoth Hot Springs…

We were able to find some of the last bits of fall color near Gardiner. The backlighting makes the colors pop!…

On the way out of Mammoth we stopped to photograph a small waterfall that I had never photographed before. I like the stair step of the rocks that the water flows over…
