Out Standing in his Field ;-)

Credit goes to my friend Carl for this telling portrait.  This was our last full day in Yellowstone, and we stumbled upon this beautiful valley just as it was starting to snow.  (See previous post “Against the Odds” for my image from this spot).

Solitude, peaceful, the sound of running water, a slight breeze in the trees, sounds muffled by the falling snow as if we were in a sound chamber, the smell of evergreens and sage … these are only a few thoughts that immediately come to mind as I think back to this moment.  The park was full of wildlife shooters, so we found it humorous that cars began pulling off the road to see what exotic creature we had spotted and were stalking.  LOL    Au contraire; we were only enjoying the beauty of the morning landscape.  Not a grand vista well known to all, mind you, but a micro-scape that was “so” Yellowstone in every way.

Firmly Grounded

    Thanks for posting this, buddy!! It was one of my most memorable moments of the 13 day trip. It was nice to see snow sticking to the gound, on June 17th no less!! It’s not often to capture an opportunity as such.

    It was a beautiful setting – tranquil and inspiring. It was my pleasure capturing a pro at work!

    Nice shot and great memories! Sure could use a little trek alongside a snow-covered stream right now … as I swelter in a humid Florida afternoon. 😉
