A soft summer night in the marsh

My shoes have never been the same since I started tromping through this muck. That part didn’t bother me so much, but I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to make a hasty escape if something started running after me. I didn’t see anything that would start a chase… there was a herd of about 14 elk about 300 meters away. I had never seen them stampede randomly in the direction of a photographer, so I felt kinda good about that. Remember, all of these were just half-fleeting thoughts that were only half-baked… I was mostly just peacefully staring at the sunset and listening to my iPod alone in the wilderness.

    Once again an excellent shot Trey.

    I have to ask though…do you not prefer to hear the sounds of nature over music? Plus, I would get creeped out that soemthing could be stalking me. lol

    And Yellowstone is one of the most beautiful places on Earth! (I happen to be bias, I live there!)

    OMG, how beautiful. So peaceful. The hand of god patting the world on its head and tucking it in for the night.

    Your photos never cease to amaze me and this one is no exception. I just sat there stunned when I opened the tab in my feed reader.

    Thank-you a hundred times over for sharing your wonderful view of the world with us!!

    Excellent! Love or hate HDR, you have to admit it interprets reflections better than any other approach.

  • Indibang

    You are always lucky to get the good cloud formations!

  • Deb

    OMG! how beautiful! I love landscapes and this is very inspiring. Thank you for sharing.

    Wonderful picture, Trey. You captured so many things in it!
    The sun going down over the hilltop, a little snow, mountains in the background, fantastic cloud formations, reflections of it all in the water, great job. Thanks for getting your shoes wet to get this one!! Yellowstone is such an amazing place. Just don’t get to close to the grizzlies or moose. Elk are pretty safe at a distance. We’ve seen a lot of people taking chances there, and with their little kids, scary!!! Keep up the good work, we so enjoy seeing your pictures every morning!!!!

    Wow! I love this shot, the colors are amazing! I almost feel like I am there as I look at it (except luckily I don’t have to worry about stampeding Elk! haha)

  • DEE

    I love the reflections plus everything else. How about a picture of the elk?

  • http://www.stuckincustoms.com Stuck In Customs

    Thank you!

    I didn’t get any pics of the elk. I aimed the camera over there, but I didn’t want to swap out my lens… and I was not sure I could get an amazing pic of the elk anyway…

    Great photograph… Forget the elk, they’re already over-photographed by every wildlife photographer out there.

    Looks like Lamar Valley?

    Thanks! Philip – that might be what it was…I can’t quite remember! :)

    that is awesome Trey – one of the reasons why you have given me so much inspiration to concentrate on HDR processing…

    This is my new desktop wallpaper, and people have already asked whos work it is – referred to you of course :)

    Cheers,

    Andrew
