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).
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.
Well we’re into a new year and it’s almost time for me to get down to some serious winter photography again. In a few weeks I’ll be heading back over to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Hopefully, the weather and lighting are good for Photography.
Now to something only slightly different. Over the years many visitors to the site have suggested that a presence on one of the photo sharing web sites would be a good way to let them comment on the images shown here on Computer Darkroom. So, when Adobe Lightroom 3 beta was released I uploaded a few hundred images to a Flickr account that I’ve had for more years than I care to recall. Anyway, now that I know it works I can share it with a wider audience. To date, there are four galleries. They can be found at IanLyons Flickr Photostream I hope you enjoy viewing the images as much as I did taking them 😉
