Yellowstone Bison Grazing at Sunset

A herd of bison grazing in a meadow at Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. I shot this on the west side of the park, heading north on the main park road, at a wide meadow past Madison Junction but before the Norris Geyser Basin.

 

No dodging or burning here--that's the light I saw, shot on Fujichrome 100. The sun broke out from under the clouds for less than a minute, then disappeared for the night.

 

I had the place to myself. Totally quiet except for the snorting of the bulls, and the breeze in the trees. There's nothing like an evening in Yellowstone.
