Notes

This image is minimally editted beyond a slight crop and minor contrast adjustment. The temperature was -15F and the thick steam over the Yellowstone was simply amazing. When the geese and ducks took flight through the mist, fortunately, my camera was set up and I was able to fire off a number of exposures in continuous mode, of which this is my favortie. Settings: 365 mm. ISO 125. f/9. 1/500 sec. + 1/3 exposure compensation.

Description

Two Moon Park is a small undeveloped county park located in Billings, Montana, which contains about 5 miles of trails running alongside the Yellowstone River and through stands of Cottonwoods. Even though it is a small park, it has an abundance of wildlife, including deer, birds, and fox. There are numerous photo opportunities, especially for those willing to look beyond the typical wide angle landscape shot. There is something to shoot and easy access in any season, and is a favorite shooting area for me when I need to stay close to home.
