It’s getting quite toasty with the heat/humidity in SE Texas so I thought that it was time to cool it down a touch with a couple of photos from Yellowstone in winter. My trip was focused on “wildlife” but we did stop a couple of times for some landscape photos. Proof that I can somewhat take non-critter photos.
I wasn’t the best prepared traveling without my ball head but made
do. Trying to use a 17-40mm lens on a gimbal head was a challenge though. Plus breaking my 100-400 lens on day 1 didn’t help so the last shot was with my 500mm lens. Next time I’ll have my back-up camera ready with my wide-angle lens for just such an occasion.
Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 17-40mm lens mounted on tripod.
