Winter Landscapes Yellowstone National Park


If you know me, you are likely shocked to read the title of this post. You see, I rarely shoot landscapes, but I have to say, winter in Yellowstone was very inspiring. It was other worldly and I was thrilled to be there and photographing the winter wonderland.

I’m very likely adding a workshop to the park next winter, email me if you would like to be kept informed. You can also check out my photography workshops…HERE.

You can see evidence that I do photograph more than just wildlife and order prints of my landscape photography…HERE.

Here is a map of the images in this gallery that will give you an idea of where I travelled throughout the park. Of course only Lamar Valley is open to civilian cars, the rest of the time we were in a very fun snow coach. It was awesome.
