Island Park and Yellowstone

A couple of weeks ago, when the weather was still somewhat nice, I took a trip to Yellowstone and made a quick stop at Island park and took some really cool nature photography. If I’m being really honest, landscape, wild life and nature photography are not my very favorites to shoot, but oh the great time I had with these. Besides the fact that I almost froze to death when taking them.

MENTAL NOTE

Never underestimate the weater and always bring good and warm jackets.

This photo right here I took almost as soon as I got to this little spot, sun had just barely come up and you could (can) still see some of the purple and blue colors as well as the morning fog from the water by the trees. This here is one of my favorites.

It was indeed a great day at Yellostone. Almost as soon as I entered the park, we saw traffic. Whenever you see traffic in Yellowstone, means there’s either a pretty view, geisers or wildlife. In this case, there was a whole family of elks just chilling by the river.

I pulled out my long lens (which is almost as heavy as a newborn baby) and took this shot. I was probably standing 4-5 yards away from them, but still got some really cool details.
