Where to find Yellowstone's best photography and viewing locations

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone is truly a nature photographers paradise. Well known as the first National Park Yellowstone is truly a place like no other. Just imagine an active volcano that is a home for most of the large mammal species the North America, has active thermal areas of bubbling hot spring a spewing geysers, and draws over 4 million visitor a year. For the photographer seeking solitude it may not be the best place to seek your images. That said, if you are willing to enter the park before dawn and leave after dusk you may be rewarded with photos it is not possible to capture anywhere else on the planet.

I began my photography career in Yellowstone in the 1970's. At that time my passion was to photograph truly wild animals in their natural habitat. Even today that is still one of most spectacular things to photograph in Yellowstone.The wildlife is abundant with Bison, Elk, Wolves, Moose, Coyotes, Deer and many other species living among the mountains, forests, rivers and thermal areas.

Basin Bend

Limited Edition of 50

Basin Bend on the Firehole river, Yellowstone.The Firehole river is surrounded by geothermal features which empty water into it. One effect of the input of this water is to increase the temperature of the water. Temperatures in the river have been measured as high as 30 °C (86 °F) and average 5 to 10 °C (9 to 18 °F) higher than areas upstream of geothermal influence.
Water entering the river from geothermal features contains dissolved chemicals and minerals. Levels of boron and arsenic have been found to be above the standard limits for protection of aquatic organisms. Despite these levels, brown and rainbow trout live and spawn in the river.
