Yellowstone elk in early morning light.

The circus of photographers continued as we went to Yellowstone.  On this morning there were so many photographers and tourist's around it was crazy.  We waited around and this buck came out from the shadows of the mountain to come out and look for some more ladies.  As he did, he stepped into the nice morning light and I was able to get this image.

Barn in morning light.

      

 

This fall Kevin and I went to the Tetons for some fall colors.  It had been about ten years since we had been there.  The first day we went to the barns and there must have been 50 or 60 people showed up for the sunrise image.  The tour industry as well as the amount of people with camera's are causing some of the popular areas to become over crowded.  As the crowd disappeared and went to the next place or off to breakfast, Kevin and I just hung around.  Ten years ago this same thing happened, sunrise did not last long and was blocked by clouds of an incoming storm.  Everyone leaves, but we hang around waiting for the sun to peak through the clouds and light up the barn with the dark background.  Then it happened for about a minute and we were there to catch the action.

Need an update really bad!

In the process of making updates to the broken links from my Posterous posts, I have realized I have neglected this site in the worst way.  My intent was to keep it updated and I have noticed how far behind I am in posting.  Over the holidays I plan on updating and getting my images up as well as the information about the sites I have visited.  A slow process, but a much needed one.

Working on website.

It looks like I made a lot of posts from a previous blog site called Posterous, which was bought out by Twitter.  I am going to try to replace the images that are not showing up or delete the posts over the next few days.  Maybe will get to post some images from my last trip.

Off to Grand Teton NP & Yellowstone

Kevin and I are headed to Grand Teton Park Friday for a long awaited vacation.  We will meet up in Jackson Hole, WY and photograph there for a few days.  I will be going there with my new GoPro Hero3 as well as my other camera gear.  This is the first trip back since I have been shooting digital.  Ah yes, back when Fuji Velvia and an enhancing filter was in every photographer's bag.  Should get a chance to post some photos and video as much as possible.  See ya soon.
