It's "Mirrorless Monday!"
What a kick to share an image from one of my most favorite parks, Yellowstone, captured by one of my most favorite artists and educators. I've shared a lot of photographs from the park in winter, going back to the industry's annual trip on snowmobiles. For ten years there were an average of twenty photographers who got together every year with plenty of gear and film to photograph the park, always covered with snow and ice.
The fun of following this current trip into the park is that it's part of The Bubble Trailer Light Tour with Suzette Allen and Jon Yoshinaga. Suzette posted this on Facebook on Friday, but the image deserves to be shared to a bigger audience!
The image was captured with a LUMIX G9 and 50-200mm lens, at "Paint Pots" at West Thumb - Yellowstone Lake. There's very little that tops the combination of the steam, the landscape, and moonrise (7:45 pm). This is also a great time of year to be there - before the winter and after the peak of the tourist season.
Suzette and Jon are on the road for a 13,000-mile adventure with great workshops scheduled all along the way.

While the primary focus of the trip is education and helping photographers raise the bar on their skill set, I love that they're sharing images all along the way!
Stay tuned - we'll be sharing so much more from the tour. There are two months to go and a lot of miles to cover!
