A view with my coffee

    Newer Older

    Thank God McDonalds opened around 5 AM!

    I woke up just before to put on my photo-ninja outfit to be sure to get the sunrise in Yellowstone. Once you are in the park, there's not a lot of food or drink options, and it's not a good idea to take a bag o' food out into the wild. But, it was a good idea to stop at McDonalds in West Yellowstone to get a giant coffee.

    The rivers in Yellowstone are fed by both rain and geothermal sources, so the water is a bit more warm than you would expect. The cool mornings, even in July, brings fresh steam off the tops. Once the sun finally comes up, it gives everything a golden hue.

    I know that many of you have used my World of Textures Tutorial (thanks!) to try some different things with your photography. I still do this a lot too. Obviously, I did it here as well, and used three different textures to achieve this.

    Tomorrow, stay tuned for a new video that shot while at another location in Yellowstone. I gave a sneak peak of it to people that got the Newsletter... I tried to set low expectations, and that seemed to work because people liked it! Ah well... let me try to reset low expectations... it's not that good.

      There's not many images that would stand up to this effect but the simplicity of the composition and the beauty of the light make this one of your best ever IMO. Great work Trey.
