May 19, 2012 represented the first day of my 100th trip to Yellowstone National Park, and I brought with a friend who had never been to Yellowstone.

 Photographer Dave M. Shumway and friend Becca Severson pose for a picture by the North Entrance sign to Yellowstone National Park. Dave was on his one hundredth trip to Yellowstone and Becca was on her first. Captured with a Canon 5D III and 24-105L IS in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of + 1 at ISO400, f/7.1, and 1/320th of a second. The camera was resting on a beanbag and was triggered with a ten second timer.

And because I am a wildlife photographer here are a few other shots from the trip, to make up for the boring people shot.

 A grizzly bear scans its surrounding on a cloudy evening in Yellowstone National Park. Captured with a Canon 5D III and 500/4.0L IS + 1.4TC III in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of + 2/3 at ISO1600, f/7.1, and 1/160th of a second. The camera was mounted on a Gitzo 3540XLS and Induro GHB2 gimbal head with a custom long lens support.

Pets are prohibited throughout most areas in national parks. It’s best to leave Fido at home, but if your dog is along here's how to make the best of it.
