October in Yellowstone: Fall Light Play

October…Fall colors, elk rut, cool mornings, steam on the water, less visitors and (often) magical light.

I love to visit both Yellowstone and Grand Teton national Parks in the month of October, and over the next few weeks I’ll share some of my favorite images from this year’s October trips.

The sun falls behind a hillside illuminating the grass on a warm fall evening along the Beartooth pass. Captured with a Canon 5DII 70-200/2.8L IS II in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of – 2/3 at ISO200, f/7.1, and 1/2000th of a second. The camera was mounted handheld.

The sun sets behind the mountains as seen from the West Summit of the Beartooth Pass. Captured with a Canon 5DII 70-200/2.8L IS II in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of – 1 at ISO200, f/16, and 1/5th of a second. The camera was mounted on a Gitzo 3540XLS tripod with Arca-Swiss Z1sp ball head a cable release was used in LiveView (mirror lockup) mode.

A crescent moon sets just behind the sun, as the sky is filled with brilliant colors that also reflect from the alpine lakes. Photographed from the West Summit of the Beartooth Pass. Captured with a Canon 5DII 70-200/2.8L IS II in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of 0 at ISO100, f/7.1, and 6/10ths of a second. The camera was mounted on a Gitzo 3540XLS tripod with Arca-Swiss Z1sp ball head, a cable release was used in LiveView (mirror lockup) mode.
