Yellowstone, natch.
Horrible lighting, but I was stuck with it.
At least the images show how the bison graze unconcernedly around the steam vents, and pools of boiling water, and geysers.
Do they ever fall through the crust and cook to death? Probably. I mean, people do, and people are more intelligent than bison .
Well, some are .

Cool shots Charlie. I gotta get myself down there before the big one blows it all up.

Very nice images, Charlie. They sure look less menacing in these> They rather suggest some peacefulness and serenity

Soooo, what's up Charlie?? Hot stuff here. I like them both. When we were in Yellowstone, we only saw one, (1), bison. ~ Ron

Hot stuff Charlie!

These are a candidate for a little fill light in PP as you did not use flash to take these lovely environmental shots

Thanks Ken, Socrate, Ron and Morris.
Ken- Estimates are that you probably have a few years before the Yellowstone "hot spot" blows its cork again. But come in from the upwind side just in case .
Yes, Socrate, bison look- and are- very peaceful. Until someone from a foreign country (especially one where all the wildlife has been killed and eaten thousands of years ago) snuggles up to one for a picture. A bad time to learn they are wild animals.
One bison? Ron- how many minutes did you spend in the park?
Yep, Morris, more detail in the shadows would be better. But you should have seen how contrasty the slides were. What is here was the best I could do without the brown fur turning blotchy and ugly. It's a common problem for me with big, dark mammals and strong back light. Made worse when shot from at least 100 feet away. Que será será .

Personally, I like my bison grilled and not steamed..but photographically, steamed is just perfect and even though I typically take them rare I like these because they are well done.

Thanks Eric, Kirk, Ray, Ken and OHM ().
Although Yosemite was set aside a dozen years before Yellowstone, Y-Stone was the first that was called a "National Park." And it is deserving of the honor; it's an out-of-this-world place, with great wildlife viewing.
It's easy to get to Yellowstone from Charlotte: go west and turn right .

Both great shots Charlie, but I really love the 2nd one

And by the way: bison look- and are- very peaceful. Until someone from a foreign country (especially one where all the wildlife has been killed and eaten thousands of years ago) snuggles up to one for a picture. A bad time to learn they are wild animals

I hope you are not talking about me here

Very nice shots, Charlie.
I especially like the second one without the trees in the foreground.
Whats wrong with going back to nature and cuddle with wildlife.

Two top notch shots Charlie and both could/should be postcard material IMO

Looks like a giant slow-cooker to me. Very serene scene. Now we just need a wolf! Don

These are beautiful Charlie, love them both.

Oh, and I've seen some homegrown folks do some very foolish things around the bison .
