Scottkinfw and eml58,
The Grand Prismatic is stunning. I don't think the camera captured it's true beauty. First day I tried to see it from an elevation it rained. Second day I returned, hiked up and was absolutely bowled over. Hiked down, went to my hotel, kicked the family out of bed and dragged them back up the hill. It would have been criminal not to have seen it for them( a 5 and a 10yr old plus wife).
The second is in the Tetons at the oxbow bend at sunrise just as the suns rays hit the peak. Sublime beauty.
As we drove around with hundreds of bisons I saw something moving in the river and as I drove closer saw this bison wading out. Grabbed the camera, ditched the car on the side and ran... got the shot I wanted as it walked out creating the ripples suggesting motion.
What a park! Something for everyone.
Winter would be amazing too. I have seen some extraordinary images of elk, bison and moose in the winter. Probably not for the weak hearted either with the climate then. With your skill and equipment I can't wait to see your images, Ed.
This was a once in a lifetime visit, something I had dreamt off for years.
My next wish is the Antelope canyons in Page, Arizona next year. Some wonderful images posted here from there recently.
Thanks for the kind words.
