We photographed around Jackson Hole, Wyoming in Teton National Park the last week in Sept. It rained, snowed, was partly cloudy, and warmed up to 60 one day but that didn’t stop us. Temps ranged from 25 to 60 over a week. The Moose and Bears are out rain or shine but of course the sunrises and sunsets aren’t too good when it is totally overcast. Some of the best landscapes came right after the rain or snow cleared, which it did. I used my new Canon 5d mark IV with a 17-40mm wide angle lens for landscapes and a Canon 1dxII for wildlife with a 300 mm f2.8 and 1.4 extender.

We spent 12 days in Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton near Jackson Hole, Wy. Most of the wildlife was shot in the Lamar Valley in the NE section of Yellowstone east of Mammoth Hot Springs. We were there the middle of May until the 22 and it snowed once or twice with some rain. Temperature ranged from 29 to 45 at night and mostly in the 50’s to 60 days. This is a good time to go before the large influx of tourists although there already were plenty clogging the roads every time a bear appeared on the side of the road. Most of the wildlife was shot with a 300 mm f2.8 Canon lens with either a 1.4 or 2 x extender and a Canon 7d mark ii or the new Canon 1DX mark ii body The landscape was with a 17-40 mm wide angle mostly on the full frame body. There are more photos which I will post later.
