[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's been a while due to being busy at work and a trip to the USA but here's a new upload finally. Yellowstone is an amazing place for animals and landscapes. IT was just the end of the mating season for the bison, but some were still fighting, throwing up a lot of dust.

Hallo Jeroen,
Wat goed om weer eens een foto van jou te zien. En een erg mooie ook. Indrukwekkend om die bizons zo bezig te zien. Misschien heb je ook nog wel een foto dat ze elkaar raken. Uitstekende scherpte, mooie natuurlijke kleuren en een goede compositie. Ik hoop dat er nog vele volgen.

Hello Jeroen,
you showed us some very dynamic situation. It's interesting to have an opportunity to see such a situation (even only throug TN). Thank you for this shot.

Ciao Jeroen. This is absolutely magnificent! The best lightning compo with excellent details and sharp.


Hallo Jeroen,

Welkom terug, wat een mooiebfoto.
De actie straalt er van af.
Mooie kleuren.


Hello Jeroen,
Nice to see you back! Very impressive scene, with great action! I imagine it will make a lot of noise too. Fortunatelly, those big animals still exist thanks to nature reserve. Hope to see more from your trip. Cheers,

Hi Jeroen,

a documentary photo!Despite the figure to the right is a little hidden cause the dust, just this gives a strong sense of vigour and energy to the photo.An excellent moment captured.Furthermore the focus on the subject is perfect as well as the composition.
