I’ve recently returned from a three-week-long road trip that began with one of my favorite places to enjoy the fall season -- Grand Teton National Park -- and ended with first visits to some spectacular national parks and monuments in Utah. So after a very long hiatus I’m finally adding some images to my website and I hope you’ll enjoy viewing these photographs from my adventures.
As mentioned previously, the Gros Ventre campground in Grand Tetons National Park is the best place in the park to see moose at just about any time of year. What’s not so reliable are the viewing and photographing conditions. Sometimes the moose congregate right in the campground among the RVs, tents and restroom facilities – not an ideal setting for wildlife photographs. Even when the animals are in more natural settings – sagebrush, cottonwoods, or willows – dappled light, tangles of branches, and crowds of photographers create challenging photographic conditions.
But whatever the situation, it’s always a great experience to see and photograph moose in late fall color in this park. Cool mornings pass quickly and give way to warmer temperatures.
Bull moose beds down early to avoid over-heating in unseasonably warm weather for late October.
Finally this Bull moose poses for a portrait in good light!
