Thankful Thursday – Yellowstone National Park

 

Thankful Thursday – Yellowstone National Park Roberta Kayne @ Yellowstone

 

I am thankful for many things, but today I am  expressing my thanks to my partner, Martin Phillips, for convincing me to go with him to Yellowstone National Park in the winter for a winter photo workshop.

 

I don't like being cold – so the last place I wanted to go in the middle of an Ohio winter was to somewhere that promised to be even colder.  But I managed to buy some wonderful warm clothes to wear, including Nike "thermal underwear" which was unbelievably warm, a few pairs of  gloves, but I ended up borrowing a pair of warm gloves from a fellow photographer who I met on the trip, great warm insulated boots from Khombu (similar to Sorel), an insulated ski-type jumper, and my down coat.  And to top it off, I wore hand warmers on my hands and feet – and those were fabulous!  As you can see, I look like an Eskimo (or the Michelin man).

 

Yellowstone was in the 20s the week we were there, and it was snowing and windy.  But I was dressed warm, and really did enjoy myself.  I was able to capture a few good photos, despite the weather and my camera lens breaking (the zoom stopped zooming near the end).

 

Here are a few pictures that I took of a coyote who was pacing back and forth along the shore of a river, apparently trying to decide how to get to the dead elk on the other side.  He then decided to chance it and swim across the river to get a few bites in of the elk. 

 

What a wonderful opportunity.  If you ever get the chance to go to Yellowstone in the winter, I'd say do it!  I don't regret it, and I'm happy and thankful not only that I went but that I was able to enjoy it and come back with some good photos….which I will be sharing here from time to time.
