I can’t think of a better place to take pictures then Yellowstone National Park. Every where you look in the park is a picture to be taken.
Spring, summer, fall or winter Yellowstone offers great picture opportunities. Every season is alive and different with snow and ice in winter, flowers and animals in the spring, summer and fall. You don’t have to have a great camera to take nice pictures in the park but it helps.
The animals in Yellowstone are great to take pictures of. You can find bison, elk, birds and maybe even a bear that will be in great form to take pictures of. The best time to find the animals in Yellowstone is early morning or at sunset. The animals are out and about and there is still some light so you can get great pictures of the animals in there natural habitat. Set up a tripod by a herd of bison and you can get some progressive shots of them grazing as the sun comes up or as the sun is setting.
Landscapes are available for pictures all over the park. It is hard to pick the best one to take a picture of. Use a wide angle lens and you can get a nice wide picture. Take a few pictures as you scan the area and you can put them together to make one big panorama.
Flowers are also all over the park. You can find them in the woods or on the prairies. Some of the best flower pictures can be found in between rocks. Use a telephoto lens on the flowers and you can get them up close.
The hot springs and geyser are great to take pictures of. Polarizers can help you get the best pictures of them while cutting down on glare. Old faithful eruptions are fabulous to take pictures of and sometimes you can find a good position with the rays of the sun to find a rainbow in the water.
Even the buildings are great picture opportunities. Old Faithful lodge is the largest log structure in the world. You can take great pictures of it inside and out. The large main room inside has a large stone fireplace that is a great background for pictures with loved ones in front of it. There is a log pillar in front of the check in counter with the claw scratches of a bear on it for a good indoor picture.
Look for the large and the small to take pictures of in Yellowstone National Park. There are so many opportunities for picture taking everywhere in the park.
