We have spent the last few days in Yellowstone National Park. Though the animal sightings have been somewhat sparse we have made the best of it and created some fun images.  These first few images will be a follow up on our last post, learning to see Black and White.  The above and following photos where taken at sunset. We were standing on a hill nearly 300 feet away. The photos were very contrasty and have good tonal values in them which is why I decided to make them black and white.

There were a so many fisherman around that it was hard not to get some great shots. Here are a few in color. Notice the lighting on the fisherman. That soft warm lighting from the sunset is what makes the images beautiful.
