Wishing everyone a happy Valentines Day.  This image remains one of my favorite elk photos.  It was taken at first light in 2015.  Haze from a forest fire to the east added to the already warm morning light.

Yellowstone's elk don't get as much attention from photographers as do bears, wolves, and other predators.  Even during the autumn rut, when the bulls look impressive with their big antlers, it's rare to see the huge crowds that often are present with roadside bears.  But in many ways I prefer photographing elk and other animals that may be present during beautiful light or in scenic locations as it provides an opportunity to record something more unique.


Crossbill of a Different Color

A little dash of color for the middle of the week. Admittedly, I don't know a lot about birds. So when my wife said there was an orange bird outside, I thought she meant red, since crossbills come through the forest from time to time. I didn't know Red Crossbills can be orange, yellow, or even greenish yellow. Now I know!

Montana: A Photographic Journey is now available and I'll be shipping signed copies next week some time.  It can be ordered, along with any of my other books, from my website in the book section here: stevehinchphotography.com/books.  The photo above is in the book and was taken in Paradise Valley, south of Livingston, Montana.  It was probably one of the most spectacular sunsets I've ever seen, with the Yellowstone River flowing below the Absaroka Mountains.


Super Blue Blood Moon...

I wasn't expecting to see the eclipse this morning since the forecast for last night and today was for clouds. When I woke up, it was dark... really dark, but I stuck my head outside anyway and was welcomed by thousands of stars. I checked with my wife who gave me her blessing to head out and off I went to find an open area where the moon was visible. The eclipse was already well underway, but I set up and started firing off a few frames. Clouds did roll in and out and it was 5°F, but I stayed with it long enough to come away with a few shots such as this one. So here it is... the super blue blood moon! haha, I wonder if there could be any more adjectives added on to it?
