Here are some images that I captured on a road trip to Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. I took these photos around the fall equinox. From Artist Point Overlook, I took two photos of Yellowstone Lower Falls. Also, I took a photo of an early morning snow at Scaup Lake. I stayed three nights at Old Faithful Lodge Frontier Cabin where I took a picture of The Old Faithful Geyser. Again I took a few photos of hot springs at the Midway Geyser Basin and West Thump. With good luck, I encountered wildlife and I was able to take some photos of elk and bison. For me, it was quite an adventure. Absolutely, I would like to go back to Yellowstone for another visit.
Here are some photos I took on a trip to Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park, Oxbow Bend on the Snake River, and T.A. Moulton Barn on Mormon Row. You can find these same scenic photo spots and more around Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It was during the fall equinox. The weather was sunny and crisp. Fall foliage was just starting to turn color. For me, it’s awesome scenery.
I took these pictures in adverse weather in Yosemite National Park, California. Despite the stormy weather, I found some lovely spots to photograph between rain showers. Fall colors are beginning to appear along the Merced River. I used a rain parka and a Nikon D600 FX with a Nikon 35 mm 1.8 lens and a Nikon 70-300 mm lens. Yosemite always has beautiful views in any season or any weather conditions.
While I was enjoying a stay at Yosemite Lodge, I took these pictures around the valley floor and along the Merced River. There was still some fall color and the fall weather was great. It was off-season so there were few people and few tour buses. I used a Nikon D600 FX with two prime lenses: a Nikkor 50 mm 1.8 and a wide angle Nikkor 20 mm 2.8. A beautiful day in the National Park.
Despite inclement weather, I was able to take a few pictures of fall color on a recent trip to Yosemite Valley, California. I took the pictures with a Nikon D600 and a Nikkor 24 to 85 mm lens. I felt like I was viewing the last days of fall foliage before the winter snow storms get under way. The mist, fog and clouds made the colors look intense, saturated and unexpected.
Here are some pictures I took on a recent day trip to Joshua Tree National Park on a hot Saturday afternoon. I was intrigued by and fascinated with the Joshua trees’ adaptation in the rocky high plains desert area of Southern California. Also I like the contrast of the clear blue sky with the desert landscape. I used a Nikon D300s camera with a Nikkor DX 18-200 mm lens. Happy trails.
