Today we left Yellowstone where we stayed in this canvas tent for three nights. Definitely a cool experience especially with the thunderstorms rolling in and out. This afternoon, made it to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We are regrouping a bit, then we’ll will be heading to Teton National Park for sunset. This has been a trip to remember for sure.
Our road trip has been amazing. We got into Yellowstone yesterday and I can honestly say it’s the most beautiful landscape I’ve ever seen. The weather has consisted of major thunderstorms about 90% of the time. In fact, while I was writing this, we had to pull off the road because we couldn’t see due to a hail storm. Although it’s prevented me from getting as many wildlife photos as I was hoping, we still aren’t even halfway through our trip. I will do my best to update you all every day, though my service is unpredictable. Have a great week, friends!
If I could just photograph dogs all day, life would be complete. I feel like I’m not alone here.
I’ve posted photos of this encounter before, but this is definitely my favorite. Most of the time with wildlife photography you have a split second to get the shot, but in this situation @jordanpulmano and I had about fifteen minutes to hang out with these Mule Deer. No immediacy and no stress. I always appreciate these situations because it gives the opportunity to step outside of the photo aspect and personally enjoy the experience for what it is.
Tools for adventure. Heading out for our road trip in three days, and I couldn’t be more excited.
Poor little guy all tuckered out. Caught this young buck taking a break in the perfect spot where the sun barely came through the trees.
If you need help on learning how to execute the the perfect hero pose, @davidjorozco is the guy to ask.
Lurking in the shadows.
Shot this amazing cabin last week at Shaver Lake. This one was a challenge for sure, but those are the shoots that I love the most.
Saturday was this beautiful girl’s birthday. We went to Cambria and had a much needed date weekend. Although we’ve been together for about 8 years now (married for 2 1/2), I still don’t know what I did to deserve her. To put it simply, I don’t. But, she’s the best friend I’ve ever had and the greatest adventure partner I could ask for.
Last weekend we came across this awesome barn near Oakhurst. I immediately thought of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn and felt like this would have been a place they explored in the book. Although I gravitate to the mountains these days, I grew up in the country, so these scenes naturally give me a pretty nostalgic feeling.
There’s something about photographing ravens that I love. Their semi glossy jet black feathers kick off highlights that make their portraits extra dramatic and ominous. I hope that Edgar Allen Poe would appreciate this shot.
