I headed out Wednesday morning with the intent of photographing some of Yellowstone's thermal features in the beautiful early morning light.  But as I drove along, just as the sun was about to peak out above the horizon, I saw a herd of elk near a pretty field of late summer flowers.  I hoped they'd move into the flowers and I'd get some nice photos, then head on to my pre-chosen location for photography that morning.  Instead, the elk moved towards the river.  As the sun backlit the scene, it all became too nice and I fretted over staying or going.  Ultimately, I decided to stay and was rewarded with the elk in some beautiful light.  At times, I was watching in several different directions to see where the best photo opportunities might be found.  With the elk beginning to form larger herds, the temperatures becoming slightly cooler, and the grasses changing from green to gold, it won't be long until autumn takes hold in Yellowstone.
