Yellowstone Weather
Posted By: palmor, 08-04-2009, 06:38 AM

To continue with the Yellowstone photos here is some of the weather we saw while there. All shot with the Pentax K20 and Sigma 17-70.

I took this is 2 .6 filters stacked. I was trying to get long exposures to capture some lightning. The nice thing was that this was happening right before sunset which gave some incredible light.
