Curious Otter

A curious North American river otter peeks out of the water in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park.  I’ve never seen one of these guys in the wild so I was thrilled to have my camera with telephoto lens at the ready!  8/29/2017

Fremont Looms

Here’s a photo I took while hiking into the Titcomb Basin of the Wind River Range.  There were so many lakes to see along the way, each with its own unique view of the mountains!  While passing, I always find myself pondering about how much I wish to return to camp at each lake and take in its unique beauty from sunrise to sunset. 8/20/2017

Tetons with Snake River

Here’s a bit of a tribute to my photographer hero: Ansel Adams. I took 3 exposures to form a brighter image with the morning light. The photograph involved a very precarious early morning climb down a slope with my camera/tripod which made for some good fun! – Enjoy

This photo is from a slightly different location than where Ansel shot his infamous Tetons with Snake river photo (trees now block that spot) but it’s very close.  8/27/2017
