The Lower Falls is Yellowstone's tallest and most accessible falls. I wanted a long exposure to get a more silky effect but even with a six stop Lee filter, f16 and ISO 100 the longest I could get was 2 seconds. I was hoping for a couple more stops but it seemed to do the job.
Such a magical place. Formally a forest. Concentrated minerals and thermal activity in the ground has made it very difficult for anything to grow. Everything that once grew here is left calcified. This was one of my favorite tree roots as it looks like a dragon wrestling with a wolf. Can you see it?
"Yellowstone National Park is a nearly 3,500-sq.-mile wilderness recreation area atop a volcanic hot spot. Mostly in Wyoming, the park spreads into parts of Montana and Idaho too. Yellowstone features dramatic canyons, alpine rivers, lush forests, hot springs and gushing geysers, including its most famous, Old Faithful. It's also home to hundreds of animal species, including bears, wolves, bison, elk and antelope."

The sun sets over Yellowstone Falls. Yellowstone Falls consist of two major waterfalls on the Yellowstone River, within Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. As the Yellowstone river flows north from Yellowstone Lake, it leaves the Hayden Valley and plunges first over Upper Yellowstone Falls and then a quarter mile downstream over Lower Yellowstone Falls, at which point it then enters the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, which is up to 1,000 feet deep.
I have a favorite tree 🌲 in @yellowstonenps. I've hiked and skied to it, and I stop and view it on most trips to #yellowstonenationalpark . The tree stands strong despite being alone atop the hill.
In early November I brought some @rockymountaincollege students from my #photography class to the park, we were fortunate to have #crepuscularays aka #JesusRays line up with the tree.
Planning my road trip for next year. Thinking about hitting up Glacier National Park, then cutting over to Seattle, and then head south down the 5, and doing my best to avoid Portland. I might have to make a stop at Yellowstone while I am on my way up. There are some shots that I wanted to get but didn’t have time during my last visit.

Yellowstone National Park is full of hidden landscape beauty if you know where to look. It takes a creative eye to shoot landscapes in Yellowstone, and for that reason it's always been one of my favorite places to shoot. The colors began to change as the golden hour set in, and it left a great glow on the grass as the colors reflected off the waters meandering through the valley. I've always found Yellowstone a relaxing place. It's easy to find solace here off the beaten path. I've spent a lot of time in Yellowstone, and no matter how many times I come here, I always find something different and it never get old. It was America's first National Park, and it's still one of the best. On a side note: always make sure to carry your bear spray here as Grizzlies are abound in the park. I've seen them (and photographed them) on more than one occasion, though thankfully always from a safe distance.
