Yellowstone/Grand Teton
Posted By: pcarfan, 08-05-2019, 05:46 PM

Most of these were taken with the Sigma 50-500mm...the other lenses were Pentax 12-24/4 and there may be some shots with the Tamron 17-50/2.8. Exif is intact. K-5, K-7 body...obviously not abstract, don’t know how to change that.

July/2019 trip...it was a family trip and not a photography trip. So, no tripod and just some shots I took as we were enjoying the area. I was there in 2010 with all the best gear and this time I decided to settle for some quick shots.

We were there in July as well, a "windshield" tour with family. Would LOVE to go back and spend a week hiking/camping with the intent being more photography oriented. Stayed at Old Faithful Inn.

Wonderful pictures BTW.

Very nice. I enjoyed these park and Tetons when I lived nearby in the Dakotas. A very good collection of the big mammals in the park. Just missing elk, moose, wolves, foxes, beavers....... That alone will justify another trip back to Yellowstone in the future.

Great post.

Actually we saw all of those except beavers in this trip, the images weren’t that great

We saw large herds of elk too, but this was a close up.










Believe it’s a female Bighorn sheep (need some color correction)


Just to show we saw bear and wolves on a carcass


May be we should go back a 3rd time to get better photos, lol...

Great set of photos! I used to go into the park frequently back when I was in college in Bozeman, MT. It was always an amazing experience. I have wanted to go back in the fall, which I think would be the best time for photography since the crowds are gone. I hope to do it one of these years.

Thank you!

In 2010 crowd wasn’t a major issue other than at Old Faithful. This year at certain times there’s big city traffic to get out of villages....I think they have like 100X more rooms in Canyon now. Also busses of tourists jostling for spot at the Grand Canyon areas.

However, Lamar, Hayden and Dunraven areas were great...probably even more animal activities, even close to lodges. It’s definitely worth a visit. I did not find the geyser/thermal area too crowded either. Only the villages and the Grand canyon part. Magical place...

Do you think Montana beef is better than what you get in the east coast? We had a ribeye on a small place in downtown Bozeman and it was out of this world...being a college student at that time,, I don’t know you’ll know the answer (if it was anything like my college days, lol)...just curious.

A wide range of wonderful wildlife photos, you have presented. My wife and I were in Yellowstone about 3 years ago. Quite a place, it was on our bucket list.

Thanks...I guess I was speaking as compared to 2010. That time, not only did I take my tripod, I had multiple primes in my photo vest, with various ND corking filters and polarizer - my wife had to kept waiting for me. This time, we went with 4 others and I did not want photography to get in the way. I still managed to take 2,000 photos

Only YSNP/GTNP and GC have we visited more than once .... it is quite a place, especially if you spent some days there and go out early and return late.

Ha! you just brought a smile to my face In college we lived on turkey legs for probably about fifty cents a piece and fresh trout that we caught regularly. However, I grew up in the country outside of Great Falls, and we ate ribeye steaks every week that were always from a neighbors beef ranch (we had no cattle, just horses).

Yellowstone is a fantastic, surreal part of this planet, shaped by that huge caldera below it. I donít think any other parts of the world has so much condensed into such a small area...amazing lakes, mountains, water falls, geysers, thermal pool and the fantastic wildlife - got to be a nature loverís paradise.

According to me and my BIL, thereís definitely something special about Montana beef - May be the grass and the water. The meat and the fat had a fantastic taste - thank to the cook didnít spoil it.
