Morning on Yellowstone Lake

Digging through old stuff looking for a contest submission, this is one of my favorite photos from Yellowstone, but I decided it wasn't "Yellowstoney" enough for the contest, so I'll just post it.

6. Very Enchanting

Visited Yellowstone several times many years ago. Once seen, can never be forgotten.

7. It's a great catch! I can easily see why it's one of your favorites.

I am wondering: did you use a long lens to get these beauties? It's very well done.

8. Thanks! It was with the kit lens at 55mm

I walked up slowly, but most of the animals around Yellowstone seem to be accustomed to humans.

9. Ah, the 55 mm. A great choice for this shot.

I was looking for the super long lens with the foreshortened foreground and didn't see that.

I do believe the animals in Yellowstone know they're protected, and accustomed to humans.

12. When I saw this picture, I drew in my breath because it seemed to me

I heard the splashing as the elk waded out into the lake, and smelled the water, grass and pines. I could feel a chill in the air as I watched the clouds kiss the hilltop in the distance. It made me feel like a kid again.

This is a great scene. It really is.

Thanks for this.

13. Gorgeous!

I will always associate elk with Yellowstone. When my husband and I visited the park in September 2018, there were elk all over the place. Leaving the park late one night, a big handsome bull elk crossed the road just a few feet in front in front of our car and paused for a moment to look at us like "What ARE YOU doing here?" (We were moving very slowly at the time, thank goodness.) Good times!

14. Yes, there were about 50 of them munching on the grass in front of Old Faithful Lodge

... completely ignoring hundreds of tourists.
