SORRY, I posted this to my blog and other places a month ago, but forgot to get a copy here...I'll make up with a few more teasers than usual.

You can read a full trip report here:
http://blog.shumwayphotography.com/2011/11/yellowstone-grand-teton-sep-29-oct-3.html
Inside of the blog post are links to images (as I write about them).

If you want to skip straight to the gallery full of images you can do that here:

Make the jump to go through the online gallery, I ask that you leave comments/criticism or at least give your favorites a thumbs up :)
THANKS!

If you have questions, ask... I published the camera information with each image and have added full keywords to share just about anything you would want to know about the images.

Happy shooting

p.s. I am sorry, but it appears I put my landscape photographer pants on at the start of the trip, and forgot to take them off until I arrived home five days later ;)
