Yellowstone Sunset

Yellowstone Sunset

Yellowstone Sunset  Winter in Lamar Valley makes for a cold, yet beautiful day for wolf watching.  More than any time of year, winter in Yellowstone makes me feel the remoteness, the wildness of raw winter nature.  It’s probably my favorite time of year to visit our nation’s first national park.  Although a color image might look a bit more natural, B&W feels like nature’s cold.

Bighorn Sheep

Bighorn Sheep

Bighorn Sheep  Winter is so beautiful around Yellowstone: my favorite time of year to visit the park.  In winter, bighorn herds move to lower-elevation mountain pastures where it’s easier to capture a nice photo.  All the wildlife, like this Bighorn Sheep, stand out against the snow in their full winter coats.  Those huge horns can weigh up to 30 pounds even though the sheep may only weigh up to 300 lb.
