Reaching way back into the archives for this one. This photo of Shield Spring taken during a winter trip to Yellowstone many years ago has always been one of my favorites. I’ve always liked the contrast between the color of the bacteria in the runoff around the spring vs. the snow and trees.
The recent cold snap had me thinking about the coldest weather I’ve experienced. It was -31°F the morning we went to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and it was one of the most beautiful sights I’ve seen. Clear blue skies and the air shimmered with tiny ice crystals floating. Its hard to believe it was ten years ago. It seems like I was just there.
I had hoped to share a photo from this week’s railroad photo charters, but as usual I’m a little behind on processing. I promise I’ll have one ready next week. In the meantime, this week’s photo was one of those happy accidents. As I was walking back from the Upper Falls Viewpoint in Yellowstone, this little pine tree was just standing there in perfect light. It stopped several of us in our tracks.
Here’s one from the archives. Several years ago, I had the privilege of attending a Digital Landscape Workshop Series (DLWS) trip to Yellowstone, led by Moose Peterson, Joe McNally, Laurie Excell and Kevin Dobler. The trip was the perfect mix of shooting time in the field and classroom time, allowing everyone to leave with amazing images and new skills. Unfortunately DLWS disbanded a couple of years ago.
