Last month, I just had to get away from here for even a few days to just relax and forget about the rat race. I found myself in Yellowstone National Park and having never been there before, I was like a kid in a candy store. Imagine being a new photographer who absolutely loves shooting landscapes and wildlife and then place yourself smack dab in the middle of 3,472 square miles of photographic opportunity. The weather wasn’t totally cooperative but that certainly didn’t stop me at all; or for that matter even slow me down. What a great few days it was…..and I didn’t even begin to scratch the surface. Although for three days, I never saw a moose or a bear, there was an abundance of elk, bison and other wildlife to choose from. I even got to witness a coyote kill. Of course, I didn’t bother to capture it. My largest lens wasn’t large enough to get in on the action and although sometimes a little more brave (daring; stupid) than others, I thought it better not to try and get close enough for a capture. Animals are kind of touchy that way.
For example, here’s a guy who was not very happy with how close I was getting to him!
Handsome isn’t he?
