This was the 12th time I've led this trip to the Canadian Rockies. I've actually seen lots of changes in that time, mostly with overall busyness of the area hotels and people at the main lookouts. Still, because my group was small and nimble, we did have several places to ourselves, and a few of my "secret" locations are still just that. The changeable weather provided a great backdrop for our scenic photography, and some fresh snow on the peaks made the mountains look even more impressive. Three times, the reflections of craggy mountains in pristine lakes were the best and longest lasting that I've ever seen in the area. Thank you to the 2017 participants.

Yellowstone tour post-trip report online
If I had to choose one word to describe this photo tour to Yellowstone National Park it would be 'changeable'. As in, the weather changed daily (also hourly) and went from snowing like mad with all park roads closed, to sunny and nice the next day. Even within the span of a day or an hour we had gusting winds with thick snow, sunny, clear skies with no wind and everything in-between. Bad weather makes for great photography. Yes, it was sometimes a challenge and we certainly needed adequate clothing, but the photography opportunities were beyond awesome. Yellowstone is a magical place that never fails to impress. There is no place quite like it. It is perhaps one of the greatest places on Earth to be a nature photographer. My group was easy-going despite the weather challenges and we got excellent images during that week. Thank you to those of you who joined us.
