Hi One and all,

it's been a while since i posted here and i hope you're all well. I thought i'd share this from a recent trip to the sublimely beautiful Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.
So, this, as the title suggests, is very early morning on the Yellowstone River, just south of the Hayden Valley and north of Fishing Bridge. If i could include a soundstrack to this, it would be of Bull Elks bugling unseen in the mist around me. Very atmospheric!
I had planned on shooting the afore mentioned Hayden Valley, but it was full of fog after the previous days rare rain fall so i was forced to look elsewhere, and decided on this spot. These long dead Lodge Pole Pines made the perfect foreground interest.
The Yellowstone river is truly a wild river - it is the longest in the U.S that runs without interference by man. It has an armosphere all of its own - and i wish i was back there...

if you would like to see more from this magical place, i have a few more on my website:

Hello, a sublimely beautiful atmospheric photo of Yellowstone.
Technically perfect and those logs in the foreground add alot of interest and serve to lead the eye straight into the photo.
