Beautiful Yellowstone in the Spring Time
While we were out exploring I was able to capture a few fun animals and landscape shots. As you can see there is still a bit of snow on the mountains and the weather was a bit nippy in the early morning but overall the trip was a lot of fun! We were able to see some bison and swans near a serene lake. In the above picture of the tree with what looks to be snow is actually a chemical reaction that happens when the steam (water vapor) from the geyser rapidly freezes when it touches a cold object and forms frost or rime ice.
I also tried a new photography technique where you have your camera set to take multiple shots while holding down the shutter and moving the camera up and down in a horizontal fashion. It works best when you find a dense area of trees. We found an area full of aspen trees and tested out this abstract technique. What do you think? I think it creates an almost dream-like state of the moving forest. Try it out sometime! If you want some more tips for visiting beautiful Yellowstone in the springtime check out this article!
