Another image of waves breaking against the Kona shore just before sunset. This one feels more serene than Kona Coast, Sunset, I but the two photos were taken within minutes of each other along the same stretch of the coast. The key difference being the length of the exposure. For this photo I used a 2.5 second exposure while the other was only 0.3 seconds.

Kona Shore Silhouette
The boulders you can see in the this photograph were most likely deposited by glaciers quite some time ago. Boulders like these are pretty common throughout the glacially carved valleys and meadows in Yellowstone National Park.
This Yellow-Bellied Marmot was hiding in a large rock outcropping. We watched it for a few seconds and then it took cover under the large rock just to the right of it. Unable to get a good picture of it under the rock, I was about to turn and leave when it came back out and stared into the camera long enough for me to get this photo.

It’s Lonely At The Top
This lonely tree grows on a rock outcropping in the Grand Canyon of The Yellowstone. I photographed it one cloudy morning but the result was even, flat lighting, leaving the photo without much of a sense of perspective. The next day I was lucky enough to return at just the right time. The cliff face and tree were bathed in the warm, direct morning sunlight but the opposing canyon wall and the foreground elements were still in shadow. As a result, the subject is literally highlighted.
