Yellowstone Fire

The Arnica Fire on September 26, 2009 in Yellowstone National Park.

I took a quick drive out into the park yesterday to check out this year’s biggest forest fire in Yellowstone National Park. It’s quite an amazing sight to see the smoke plumes from throughout much of the park. At this point the fire was at 1,600 acres, but by this morning it was at 4,700.

Madison River in Black and White

There’s something about Yellowstone Park that lends itself to black and white photography. Most likely it’s a combination of the rugged landscapes and dramatic lighting.

I took this shot this morning along the Madison River. After a heatwave of several days in the mid-80s, the temperature dropped today and the wind has really picked up. You can see some stormy clouds forming, but so far no rain.

Snowy Day – Part 1

Snow doesn’t mean your trip to Yellowstone Park is ruined. On the contrary, the park takes on a whole new dimension. This is the start of a series of images I took after a recent snowfall.

Be careful driving

I took this shot a little bit outside of the park, but it shows why you want to be careful driving when in this area. Just over the crest of the hill these sheep were about the cross the road. The truck came over the hill and slowed down in time, but you have to be cautious around here.

Baby Buffalo

These little guys are a lot of fun to watch prancing around. Late May and early June are not times that are heavily populated with visitors, but the locals say it’s one of the best times to see animals.

This morning I was in Ernie’s Deli getting an Americano when I heard about one person who saw a bear take down an elk. He had captured it all on his camcorder and from what I heard it was pretty amazing.

Here’s a baby buffalo that I saw last week that was nuzzling his mother.
