Yellowstone Winter Photography Safari

And the cold goes on…

What amazing images we were able to create with the steam rising from the Madison River and Firehole River, mixed with ice particles in the air creating sundogs with intense colors.  Add in swans on the Madison River, and ice flocked trees at Midway and Lower Geyser Basins, and it just doesn’t get any better.

Yellowstone Winter Photography Safari

This morning we awoke to -31 degrees fahrenheit.  By the time we entered the park it was a balmy -28.  Sounds bad, but bundled up, we stayed pretty warm and captured images that only happen under these conditions.  The trees were covered with rime frost and new layers of ice and frost on the ground created beautiful designs.  Frosty fog added another dimension.
