We had two beautiful days in Yellowstone National Park where the weather was quite nice and cooperative with some beautiful clouds to enhance the images. Then yesterday afternoon, as promised by the weatherman, things started to change pretty fast. Some places we had steady winds in the 50 to 60 mile an hour range and other places we had sudden gusts that made you wonder if they were going to pick up your camera, tripod and all, and send them sailing. One such gust blew my hat right off my head and sent it down the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. It was one of my very favorite caps too :.-( . Yellowstone is in a prime location as well as altitude for rather startling weather changes. The photo you see above was taken this morning in a near blinding snow storm not too long before we headed home.
This is the exact same bison on Monday afternoon, not far from where the top one was taken. Okay, I don't know if it is really the same one ;^) . But there is at least one in about 1000 chance that it is.
I'm pretty excited about some of the photos I was able to capture in and around Yellowstone. I'll be sharing them here. I hope you enjoy seeing them almost as much as I enjoyed finding them.
