Yellowstone in winter. Pretty harsh. Comments always welcomed and respected.

I really like this a lot Al. I think I would try a crop to eliminate most if not all of the foreground snow as I don't think it's necessary to tell the story here and I find it somewhat distracting. I bet this would look great in black & white as well.
Bet it was harsh for the photographer, too. Awesome shot!!

Hi Larry. Thanks for the comments. I guess in my old age I sometimes forget to do certain important things with my shots, like crop. I hope everyone likes this a little more, now.

Great shot. It has gained much through gropping according to Rick´s advice.

They are both good shots, I do like the second one cropped better though, it is great. Now I wish that was all I had to do to my pics to make them so nice!

Thanks. It was probably around 15 degrees farenheit. Al
