Yellowstone & Grand Tetons Landscapes - May 2021

 Yellowstone & Grand Tetons Landscapes - May 2021

As a landscape photographer, there are few places that compare to the beauty of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. With their stunning mountains, pristine lakes, and diverse wildlife, these two parks offer endless opportunities for capturing breathtaking images. 

One of my favorite spots in Yellowstone is the Grand Prismatic Spring. The vibrant colors of the spring, with its deep blue center and orange and yellow edges, make for an incredibly striking photograph. I like to capture the spring from a nearby hill that overlooks it. 

Another must-see spot in Yellowstone is the Old Faithful geyser. While it can be crowded with tourists, the eruption of Old Faithful is always a spectacle that is well worth the wait. I like to get there early to find a good spot to set up my camera and capture the eruption from different angles. 

The Grand Teton National Park is also home to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. The Teton Range, with its jagged peaks and snow-capped summits, is a photographer's dream. I often take a hike to one of the nearby lakes, such as Jenny Lake or Jackson Lake, to capture the reflection of the mountains in the water. 

One of my favorite times to photograph in these parks is during the golden hour, which is the hour before sunset or the hour after sunrise. The soft, warm light during this time of day is perfect for capturing the natural beauty of these parks. 

Overall, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks offer a wide range of opportunities for landscape photography. From the vibrant colors of the hot springs in Yellowstone to the majestic peaks of the Teton Range, these parks never fail to inspire me and my photography.
