A Taste of Route 66 and New Mexico

A selection of images from my recent trip to the USA can be viewed on my Flickr site. The gallery comprising 50 images from locations including a small section of Route 66 between Albuquerque (New Mexico) and Holbrook (Arizona), White Sands National Monument and Bosque del Apache. The gallery includes a number of images not shown in the blog entries shown below.

Yellowstone & Grand Teton in Winter – 2010

No sooner had I posted the Yellowstone Gallery than I received emails asking why I had chosen to use an Adobe Flash Gallery rather than HTML. Truth is, I didn’t think it was going to be an issue, after all Flash galleries are widely used across the web and tend to be a lot more feature rich than HTML. Unfortunately, they fall foul of Apple’s policy of not supporting Flash on the iPhone or iPad devices, hence the emails I mentioned above. Should this really matter to site like this? Probably not, but I’d rather anyone who wants to view the images is able to do so. So, I’ve changed the gallery over to a Lightroom HTML gallery –  Yellowstone in Winter – 2010

Yellowstone & Grand Teton in Winter – 2010

In late January through early February I was fortunate to visit the Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. This was my third winter visit to the parks, and was again arranged by Roger Reynolds of Photo Ventures. Unlike my previous visits there was significantly less snow around and temperatures much higher than I’ve come to expect. In some respects, especially for wildlife photography, this played to our advantage. many of the hot springs were easier to access and the wildlife more abundant. The one downside of the higher temperatures was the lack of earlier morning frosts. The series of images making up the gallery is presented using Adobe Flash and was created in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3. Yellowstone in Winter – 2010 (see 2 June above for update on gallery type).

Yellowstone in Winter – 2010

I’ve just returned from my third winter photo shoot in Yellowstone National Park. While weather conditions were somewhat less extreme than during my past visits the opportunities for photography were still plentiful. To mark my return I have updated the site index and home pages to include two of my favourite images. I’m particularly pleased with the image of the Bobcat, which I’m told is rarely seen. Additional images will be uploaded over the coming weeks.
