So I’m standing on fishing bridge in Yellowstone taking some shots of the ice still on the lake. I look to my right and I see this grizzly running down the street when he decides to take the sidewalk that I’m standing on. The park rangers are chasing him / her and yelling “Get off the bridge”. So I calmly do, fortunately the traffic is stopped watching this because that’s what getting off the bridge means. Go stand in traffic. I got these three not so great shots of the bear running by.
I was in Yellowstone for four days last week. Never enough time but boy can you see a lot in a short period.
Saw – Bison, Elk, pronghorn, bighorn, coyote, fox, great horned owl right at the visitor center had a nest got two babies in a tree, grizzly w/cub, black bear w/3 cubs, Stayed in Gardner 5 miles north of the north entrance. Great place to stay if you don’t want to be close to Old Faithful. But being there for critters, the north side is the place to be. The lodge at Canyon Village is also a good location and looked brand new and had just opened this past weekend.
I just got back from a trip to France. Paris and Provence to be exact. It was a vacation on not a specific photography trip. But there’s no way I’m going anywhere without a camera. I took the D7100. Lightweight, hi res and pretty good in low light. All of my photos were hand-held. Next time I will definitely bring a pedometer as I walked enough to compensate for all of the food I ate. I’m currently going through croissant withdrawal. First stop, Notre Dame Cathedral Paris.
When my whale watch / puffin tour got cancelled two days in a row I had to figure out something else to do that was out of the ordinary. How about a ride in a bi-plane? The afternoon flight took me down the coast of Acadia NP. I shot out the side and between the wings and really the best view for the camera was behind me. So a bit of twisting to get a shot. We landed as the clouds began to build and the rain started moving in.
