Below I’ve charted out the best times of the year to see the most requested wildlife in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Grand Teton National Park. Below the chart, I’ve described the reasoning for those times of the year, as well as areas that those particular animals frequently are seen. Keep in mind that nature works on its own schedule, so even though a box might be marked as red (not a good time to see it) you can still see it.
Please don’t ask me for specific updates on certain animals. As you can probably imagine, it would begin to take up quite a bit of my time. If you’re interested in having me guide a tour to help you find some wildlife, I can be hired through Jackson Hole … Continue reading
A pronghorn doe wanders through hilly grasslands in Yellowstone National Park, Montana.
This past month I’ve begun revisiting my black and white collection. I’ve even been trying some new concepts and ideas with some of them. It’s come as a result of seeing some work that I was familiar with, but seeing it again at this point in time struck me with more motivation and inspiration than when I had originally looked at it.
One such example was Nick Brandt. A friend had posted on his Facebook profile yesterday a link to his work, and while I was already familiar with it, I didn’t really appreciate it until I looked at some examples again yesterday. While I certainly enjoyed the work I saw, it was one specific photo that caught my attention and had me more motivated than ever to try some new things. It’s interesting how you might simply … Continue reading
A panoramic closeup of the face of a pronghorn in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park.
This was almost thrown away because it was zoomed in way too close and there wasn’t much of a composition I could find with it, until of course the idea of cropping down to a panorama came into mind. All of a sudden, a shot I was ready to completely throw away began to grow on me. It didn’t just grow on me, it immediately became one of my favorite shots from my quick jaunt up to Yellowstone National Park this past weekend.
Pronghorn are very skittish animals and typically run away as soon as anything other than another pronghorn gets near them. This one however wasn’t quite so quick to run and allowed me to get a couple of shots where I was probably zoomed in too much. Or was I? It … Continue reading
A pronghorn stands beneath smoke from the Antelope Fire of 2010 in Yellowstone National Park.
Apologies for the lack of posts lately (again). I’ve got about two weeks worth of photos that I’ve barely even touched. I’ve had quite a bit of projects keeping me busy lately, but I’ve made a couple of major shifts in my life that should ease up some of the stress I’ve been under.
Given the busy nature I’ve been experiencing lately, I found it extremely helpful to escape up to Yellowstone National Park, even if only for a night. While I was too far away for a decent photo, I was able to see wolves and their pups near the Lamar Valley, which was a great sight to see! On the way out of the Lamar Valley, I spotted this pronghorn standing rather majestically on top of a ridge. The smoke you see in … Continue reading
A small herd of pronghorn migrate through snow in Grand Teton National Park.
Considering this was taken in early January, it’s extremely late to be seeing pronghorn around this area, especially this many of them. There was another herd nearby totaling them up to roughly 50-70. Pronghorn usually migrate through Grand Teton National Park in the fall and spring and their way to and from climates with a little less snow. Hopefully this herd was able to get somewhere safely.… Continue reading
