    Took my father on a photography trip through Yellowstone over Memorial Weekend. Rain and snow with overcast skies 90% of the trip. But the trip was more about spending time with my father, and we had a great time. We came away with some great memories and a handful of keepers.

    Thanks, the light was horrendous every time we were out shooting. Sun only peaked out a couple times and we were on the road each time. LOL

    No, that was a bad thing. Nearly all the bears (9 of them) were in the shade anyways. The light was horribly flat.

    That is hardly a good excuse...you could have gone right in there and scared those bears out of the shadows.;):mrgreen:

    LOL, we were up before the sun and still out after the sun went down. I was wanting some pics in the warm light hours is all. LOL And the thermal pools photograph much better when they reflect a nice looking sky. All we had was drab grey reflections. LOL

    Great group of shots. I love the detail on the raven too. I think it needs a vert crop though.
