Overcoming Old Habit?

I think it comes from film days when I had just enough money to buy film but not get it all processed right away. Shooting brief action was something I got low returns of success and when it cost money with every click, I wouldn’t take the chance on photographing brief action. Whatever the hesitation is on hitting the shutter release, I push myself now that whenever I see action no matter how brief if the image looks sharp, I hit the shutter release. It does pay off.

Habitat is Everything!

Said our good-byes to a really great group of photographers, moved our base of operation and headed over to the Lamar Valley region of Yellowstone. Even if I never make a single click, I just like the total change the north end of the park provides. How many times have I cruised the road in the last 30yrs? Oh man, no clue but it never gets old. In fact, it offers up challenges and new opportunities each pass of the road which is probably why we love it so. And it’s one place I can easily indulge my passion for Bighorn Sheep.

Yellowstone Adv – Wolves!

This was one of those magical days in a career you know will come if you put your time in. So you drag your butt out day after day long before sunrise is even a hint on the horizon just waiting for it. We made the bend in the road at Seven Mile Bridge when Steve says, “Is that a Wolf?” There, beside us is a Gray Wolf pulling on an elk carcass. Could have grabbed its tail by reaching out the door! It’s just after 7AM, the sun won’t rise for another 30min but it won’t help, it’s snowing. No matter, even with the worst possible light we stop and get out cautiously.

Yellowstone Adv – Bighorn Sheep 101

It was simply a marvelous day! Simply put, we took the group to a part of the Yellowstone ecosystem that few others ever explore and learn about. After a great morning we ended up with one of my favorite species, Rocky Mtn Bighorn Sheep. For the majority of the group, it was the first time they had ever seen a Bighorn let alone photograph them so it was a learning experience all the way around!
