p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · First Light in the Yellowstone Forest


Winter time in Yellowstone National Park is like no other park. Geothermal steam behind many scenes creates exciting photo ops. Getting in and around most of the park requires passage on a snow coach, or tundra buggy, as I call them. No automobiles are permitted. No families and screaming kids to get in your way. But, you pay for it by photographing early in the morning with temps typically from zero to minus 23 degrees F. That was my experience the past two weeks. Cameras worked fine, but my face started malfunctioning. Was worth it!

Love this scene Jeffrey! Also love your description of shooting in winter there. Maybe some year I will be brave enough to try it.

Well the image is outstanding, I bet being there to feel and see this was incredible. Tundra buggy ride sounds nice too

The trees with their ice and blackness make for such a great contrast between snow and sky, colors are giving me goosebumps
Simply stunning presentation ...

Such a stark desolate place warmed up nicely by the sunset. Excellent work as usual.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind comments. I remember the Wyoming cold every day I go out in the brisk California mornings. Can't compare!

Love this image, just wonderful. Thank you for sharing. As much as I'd like to get out there in winter...and I've looked into it a couple times...but I too am a So Cal person and the thought of negative temps is not the most promising proposition.

Thanks for the kind words, Michael. I though as you do for a while. I wore the right layers and coats, used hand warmer packets, had insulated boots, etc.. It was an exciting experience being able to shoot at -23 F. Most days were between -10 and +10. My shutter finger got numb. My face began to no longer function. But the excitement of photographing such outstanding scenery and wildlife distracted me from the cold in a good way. Try it!
