About MeI live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where I explore the deeper reaches of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem while also trying to raise awareness about light pollution and the importance of dark skies through photography and video.

Bison are back out on the move and I found a big herd of them on my way back from Grand Teton National Park the other night perfectly posed on a ridge as the last light of day was hitting Sheep Mountain, aka The Sleeping Indian.
In making another trip up into the interior of Grand Teton National Park to find the bears, I came up empty yet again. However it was a great day to shoot something I normally don’t get many photos of: birds. The Oxbow Bend was completely awash with all different kinds of birds including these two bald eagles that flew right overhead.
Elk are on the move from the National Elk Refuge into Grand Teton National Park. This bull was posing along the Gros Ventre River in so many different ways I stayed and watched him for quite a while and wound up getting dozens of shots of him.

When I first moved to the Jackson, WY area I saw an incredible scene that would have made a killer panorama – a golden light hitting clouds of a winter storm over distant mountains as a line of a dozen or so elk walked along the top of a ridge in front of it all. Thinking I would be seeing plenty of scenes like that, I kept driving to get where I was going and have since been kicking myself for not stopping and getting the picture. Well last night after hanging up my show at Pearl Street Bagels, I was on my way home and saw almost the exact same scene! The only difference was that there weren’t quite as many elk as the other time, however I learned my lesson and I made sure to get this one.
Several moose have been hanging out in the creeks just south of the Buffalo Fork River and Moran, Wyoming. This one in particular was perfectly posed so I had a clear shot through some of the willow trees, giving me quite a few great shots of her.
