Yellowstone Winter Photography Safari

Bison,

Difficult to photograph, but a few techniques help.  Getting some detail in a dark animal is easier with soft light.  Shooting from our Snowyacht gets us closer to the action.

As we approach the bison jam, I had my camera set with a high ISO and fast shutter speed.  I took a test shot out the window to make sure my exposure was good before the action began.
