Chester Area

Wednesday and Saturday nights I went out to Chester to take advantage of the beautiful light and to check on the progress of the Chester Dam Construction. Wednesday night I had the boys, which was nice, but a little distracting. Ethan caught a whole handful of grasshoppers. I didn’t get a photograph unfortunately, but it was as disgusting as it sounds. The shot I really wanted, which is the first shot below, would be better in early morning light. I went out Saturday again because it was overcast and I didn’t think direction of the light would be as big of a deal. It didn’t really work because of a several rain storms and then bright sky looking right into the scene. I made a few other photographs though and it was a pleasant night. Here are three photographs from the two expeditions.

More Fish

Along with photographing in Yellowstone, I also did a bit of fishing. I found a nice spot and caught one of the biggest fish of my life, unfortunately it got off before I could get a photograph. I did photograph one of the smaller ones though. I also went fishing on the South Fork of the Snake today and had a great time and caught a lot of fish. I’m also including a photograph of one of those fish. I’m enjoying my time off.

I used to pride myself on the fact that I have never photographed in Yellowstone. I don’t know why exactly. Anyway, this summer I’ve been up three times and have decided I like it up there quite a bit, and should take advantage of living this close. Here are a few images I’ve made over the last couple of trips.
