    Here are the pictures that I promised from my trip. I have been crazy putting together a few interviews and an article. I have a weblog up at NWP in the National Park Photographer Forum for people interested in where I saw wildlife, etc., during the trip to Yellowstone and the Tetons.

    I have many more coming - I have just been busy with wedding work and I have not been able to put the appropriate amount of time into this.

    Thanks!

    It was a great week. I took close to 1,000 shots - which is actually comparable to what I would shoot in one day in a wedding. :)

    Anyway, thanks for the comments. I enjoy Yellowstone very much and would like to eventually move there. Housing is VERY expensive though - and the small towns around it are jus not quite developed yet.

    Very nice series, James. You did a heck of a job capturing those Moose. A wonderful job bringing Yellowstone to us all.
     
  9. Coyote shot is cool but what is that device on his neck for? Tracking device?
     
  10. Nice series James. I was really interested in this as my wife and I are planning a similar trip at the end of September to see the Tetons and Yellowstone. Any advice would be much appreciated.
     
  11. Beautiful photos, James. I especially love the baby moose shot.

    "Coyote shot is cool but what is that device on his neck for? Tracking device?"

    A lot of the wildlife are tracked. At first, I kind of fantasized that they were using coyotees to save wounded travelers....you know, the bottle of whiskey around the neck to save damaged skiiers? :)

    "Nice series James. I was really interested in this as my wife and I are planning a similar trip at the end of September to see the Tetons and Yellowstone. Any advice would be much appreciated."

    Thank you very much for the comments. Actually, the season just gets better as you go along. IMO, the best time to go is in late September, early October (depending on the weather). The aspens turn a beautiful shade of orange and it makes for a wonderful canvas against the Teton mountain range.

    I know that many photographers prefer the earlier stages of the rut, but in late September, the Elk are still bugeling - and you have better chance to see the bull moose, who come lower as the season progresses. By late November, the bulls (moose that is) loose their antlers (the Elk hold onto theirs until March/April).

    This is the first year that we have focused so heavilly on Yellowstone. I will admit that I really enjoyed myself - particularly the northern sections of the park - from Mammoth to East Gate.

    I normally prefer Grand Teton as it is less crowded and wildlife is abundant - particularly in the evenings in late August through early October (they seem to be more abundant in Yellowstone during the day). All of the best bear and moose that I have photographed have been in the Tetons. A fellow on my site got a nice shot of a bull moose in Gros Ventre (between Jackson and Kelly).

    If you need help with hotels, etc., please feel free to send me an e-mail or PM (either here or at NWP). I will gladly send you in the right direction. I have a couple of friends who have places in Jackson - depending on what you are looking for.

    dbirdsong,

    How were you able to make my link show a picture in the thread as something other than a link? I have not been able to figure out how to do this - here or at NWP.

    Paul,

    You rock. Thank you very much for the response. That had been bothering me.

    I have been working on beefing up the weblog a bit and will make a front page article out of it. Hopefully this weekend. :) I am also going to put up a new interview. I am starting to feel stagnant. :)

    Here is my FAVORITE photo of all time from Wyoming. OK, maybe not, but close. Notice how I capture the rolling hills. Totally artful.

    Paul,

    That is very nice of you. However, I am not that interesting. :) Everything one step at a time though. Maybe as my career goes forward, we will rethink about that.

    I just thought that I would let people know that I have completley updated my Yellowstone Weblog. In addition to some new photographs, it is much more indepth than what I was able to produce during the short periods of modem access we had when we were out West and when we came back.

    The complete, unabridged version is up at:

    ...one thing though - there are a lot of photographs in the pages, so if you are at 56k, please be patient. :)
