Beautiful image. The 28-105 is the perfect lens for Yellowstone except for wildlife.
Thanks. And yes, the DFA 28-105 is perfect for Yellowstone landscape (and landscapes in many other national parks).

Another image from just up the Yellowstone River:

I'll play. These are from May 2019 in Yellowstone. The first one is the Lewis River near where northcoastgreg took his shot and the second one is the Hayden Valley from where wtlwdwgn and northcoastgret took their shots. I was standing next to wtlwdwgn when I took it.

Thanks for posting these. It's interesting to see what these places looked like four months earlier, when there still plenty of snow on the ground. I had originally planned to go to Yellowstone in May, but that fell through and I had to go in September instead.

Here's Lewis Falls on the morning of September 7:

I like going to the park in May for several reasons. Easier to see bears as they are down low and scavenging winter kill and looking for plants to eat. Hotel room rates go up substantially on June 1. Less crowded. Early sunrise lets us into the park usually before 6:30AM. The main attractions don't usually start filling up before 9:30 or so. I usually hit the main spots early then head out to the less crowded areas as the day progresses. I have encountered every weather possible there in May and that is not a bad thing. A light coating of snow overnight has a magical effect on the scenery.


I have found that in May there is a lot more snow in the southern area of the park that in the northern section. I also never enter the park without a full tank of gas in my vehicle (Nissan Frontier). My favorite thing about Yellowstone is that the park changes by the minute and you never know how much time you may spend in any one area. Once you get the closer shots it is fun to just pull off the road and park for awhile. Then with binoculars or a spotting scope you scan the scenery. I have found wolves and bears like this. To far off for good photographs, but interesting to watch. Sometimes it is okay to put the camera down and just take the place in.
