My brother and I went on an 8 day trip last week during which we covered 2800 miles over 6 states and 6 national parks. We flew into Albuquerque then drove up through Colorado and Wyoming to Yellowstone and then back down through Utah. Three full days were spent at Yellowstone. It being more of a brotherly bonding trip than a photo trip, I packed the bare essentials. I went with my Pentax K100D, a 2 gig SD card, a 28mm f/2.8 lens and a 135mm f/3.5 lens. No tripod, and I shot in jpeg. This may seem a recipe for disaster, but I came away with it feeling satisfied that I got most of the shots I wanted. So here are a few of the first ones I've 'edited' (usually just making sure it's level and there is no dust). By no means the best, but I shot over 600 frames and it will take me a long time to get through them all. I'll be sure to post them as I go. 1. A grizzly and her cub 2. A bull elk 3. A yellow-bellied marmot 4. Some thermal features 5. Some more thermal features C&C welcome.
