Photo Venture 2006

Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks


In late January through early February 2006 I was privileged to participate in a photographic expedition to the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks in the USA. The group comprised of 8 photographers, which included the organisers by Roger Reynolds (Immediate Past President of the Royal Photographic Society) and Peter Morss of Photo Ventures.

The first few days of the trip were spent in and around Jackson Hole, which gave us quick and easy access to the Grand Teton National Park. During the Yellowstone leg of the trip we visited and photographed locations such as: The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Hayden Valley, Norris, Lower, Midway and Upper Geyser Basins as well as many other fantastic locations such as Blacks Sands Basin, The Firehole River Drive, Biscuit Basin, The Madison River Valley, Mammoth Hot Spring Terrace, along with many Geysers in the area around Old Faithful. My my good friend Michael Reichmann at Luminous Landscape had previously told me that winter in Yellowstone provides a feast of photographic opportunities; he wasn't exaggerating.

The one thing that makes Yellowstone in winter such a spectacular location is the sub zero climate. However with the Roger and Peters experience of conditions in this area they were able to ensure that all tour members survived the conditions and managed to get some very good images. The following series of images are just a small sample of over 1700 that I managed to capture.
