Progress! I’ve completed another batch of older images, and have added them to the photo archive. This past week I went back and reprocessed images from my 2003 and 2004 summer trips to Yellowstone. There’s a lot of nostalgia connected to these trips. Both were taken with friends, so I have a lot of fond memories.
I was also starting to come into my own as a wildlife photographer (though looking at most of these photos now, you may not know it). The 2003 trip marked my first time shooting digital in the park, but I was still using film occasionally. A few of the shots taken on slide film have made it into this new gallery (which combines photos from the two trips, since there were relatively few keepers). When I get in front of a decent slide scanner down the road, I hope to add a few more photos.
These trips were in the summer, since these were the days when I “didn’t know any better,” and kept missing out on the wonders of spring, but they still provided some indelible moments, from my first otter sighting—which remains one of my best to date—to an incredible July 4th sunset on the Madison (which I wrote about in the blog a few years ago!). The first photo I ever licensed was taken during this time as well.
See the full gallery of 2003-04 Yellowstone images in the archive. A short preview is below.
