Rewarded Patience in the North Fork of Cascade Canyon

North Fork of Cascade Canyon

Weather in the Tetons can change in what seems to be an instant. A warm, sunny day had just transformed into a chilly, overcast day with a strong, threatening breeze. I had just arrived at my chosen campsite in the North Fork of Cascade Canyon in Grand Teton National Park when “bad” weather immediately began encroaching.… Keep reading...

Grizzly Bear #399 Nursing Her Cubs

Grizzly Bear #399 Nursing Cubs

I posted this photo onto my 500px page and after the great response, I realized I didn’t have it on my blog yet. I got this late one night while plugged into a friend’s Canon 500mm and also seeing just how good the 7D could handle high ISO. It turns out that even though there is noise, it’s still pretty usable and I’m looking forward to making a few prints to test out just how big I can get away with.… Keep reading...

Skyrocket Gilia at Sunset

Wildflowers at Sunset

I headed up to Grand Teton National Park for the weekend to try and find some more grizzly bear opportunities, however sightings are becoming more scarce these days as the heat of summer is beginning to set in.

The wildflower and bear activity may be beginning to wind down (with some rather absurd restrictions being enforced by the park service, but I won’t get in to that now), but I was able to capture a few wildflower scenes before they all retreated from the valley.

Last week I headed up to the summit of Snow King to get the last of the balsamroot before they began to die off, as well as on the other side of the mountain along the Josie’s Ridge trail.… Keep reading...

Stormy Balsamroot Sunset

Sunset Thunderstorm Over Balsamroot Wildflowers

I’m taking a short break from all the grizzly bear posts for this wildflower shot I got shortly after it got too dark to continue photographing one of the bears. I was hoping for a better composition, but the light was changing so fast, I was lucky just to get this shot off!… Keep reading...

Grizzly Bear Cub of #399 Standing

Grizzly Bear Cub Standing

I’ve finally begun getting a good amount of photos done on the grizzlies and while I’m very happy with what I came back with, the itch to get back up there is growing stronger and stronger.

On one evening, Grizzly Bear #399 and her three new cubs were grazing in a field of wildflowers, offering up some incredible shots.… Keep reading...
