Firehole Falls

Firehole Falls 2


Taken a few years ago in Yellowstone National Park, I found the falls on the Firehole River to be very picturesque. There are many more things to see in the park than just geysers. A slower shutter speed helps smooth the water into a creamy flow over the rocks in the falls.

Lamar Valley Autumn Poplars

Lamar Valley Autumn Poplar


On a 2010 trip to Yellowstone National Park, we spent a morning in the Lamar Valley, ostensibly to see if we could spot the Lamar Valley wolf pack. We did catch a distant sighting of wolves but came away with some great landscape shots. It was near the peak of fall colours in that part of the park.

Yellowstone Video

December 15th was slide show night for the Taber Photography Club. I wasn’t able to attend, as usual, but did send in a slide show of my recent trip to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Apparently there were 17 shows (5 min or less) viewed that night. I heard from a number of friends who were at the meeting and everyone agreed the shows were a big hit.

My video is 4 minutes 21 seconds, if you have a few minutes, take a look and let me know what you think.

Oxbow Bend Again

Oxbow Bend On The Snake River

It looks quiet and peaceful here but it was nearly elbow to elbow with other photogs at the World Famous Oxbow Bend on the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. The sky was ominous and I thought going wide (12mm) would show it off the best. (more…)
