Yellowstone in the Fall

For a few years, a good friend of mine, nature photographer Bernd Kupka (www.outdooradventurepics.com), has been trying to get me to go with him to Yellowstone and photograph wildlife. I’ve planned on going several times, but it never worked out. A few weeks ago the stars finally aligned and I was able to take the time for a trip. Since I don’t drive anywhere if I don’t have to, I flew up there met Bernd, his girlfriend Daneka and their dog at the West Yellowstone Airport. But first I circled the park and photographed some of the amazing features from a whole new perspective for me.

We spent the next few days driving around the park photographing wildlife. We saw five grizzly bears, but only one that was close enough to photograph. We also saw a pack of 10 wolves, but they too were a bit to far off to work with. But the other animals and the sunsets more than made up for it.
