One of my favorite things to photograph are Yosemite crows and ravens against a snowy background. Although it’s a completely black subject, the highlights in the feathers create a ton of detail. I always think it’s cool when you can find something significant in an otherwise overlooked animal.
Lone ranger. I wonder if this guy has a valentine somewhere out in the vast Wyoming wilderness.
In the midst of a snowstorm, this bull elk nonchalantly grazed a few feet from the side of the road. While I wish I had a story about trudging through deep snow and waiting for hours in a blizzard for the perfect moment to photograph this guy, sometimes these experiences just fall into your lap. Personally, I think it means more when you “earn” the shot, but times like these can be just as awesome.
Been loving these recent storms in California. They’ve made for some incredible sunsets. Makes it even better when I get to experience them with this girl. Out of curiosity, do you all prefer sunset or sunrise?
Although the current Yosemite landscape is much frostier, I appreciate the wildlife just the same, regardless of the season.
The Boiling River in Yellowstone. Awesome to look at, but not awesome to touch.
Just the happiest little fox you’ve ever seen, sliding into your Wednesday feed. (That is, if the Instagram algorithm allows it)
The last couple days, we’ve had some good storms rolling through Central California. Yesterday, we had a tornado warning so I grabbed my gear and drove out to the rural part of town with hopes of seeing some funnel clouds. I saw some lightning in the distance so I ended up driving out to an old cemetery that had an unobstructed view of the stormy foothills. It was an eerie feeling as I stood out there hoping for a tornado or even just a bolt of lightning nearby. I was surrounded by large thunderheads, but the weather was calm and quiet (with the exception of the thunder in the distance). As if it wasn’t creepy enough with the decayed tombstones near me, a slight breeze came through and a cluster of wind chimes started going. If you’ve ever seen the movie “Twister”, you’ll understand the vibe I’m talking about. Unfortunately, there was no tornado and no epic bolts of lightning, but the thrill of not knowing what was going to take place was pretty awesome. Plus, having the windows open last night as we listened the mass amounts of rain and hail made up for it. Who else loves this type of weather??
Wish I could’ve seen this bald eagle a little closer, but man, these things are astute. We spotted the eagle from 75 yards away, and were out about 40 yards before it flew away. This was my exact experience with the other eagles I’ve seen. Still waiting for the day when I get my bald eagle portrait with its eyes staring straight into my lens.
Just a shot of an extremely photogenic elk to start your weekend off on the right foot. Anyone have some awesome weekend plans??
Anxiously awaiting the upcoming California rain. Thankfully, we don’t have to deal with the polar vortex that some of our fellow states are encountering. Stay warm out there, friends.
