I have made many trips to Yellowstone from the end of October through present, and all but my most recent are online, but I have been too busy to get individual posts online.
You can make the jump over to my blog to read short reports about these trips:

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

Two black wolves, members of the Mollies Pack, move through the Lamar Canyon on the frozen Lamar River in Yellowstone National Park. The pair was rejoining their siblings after a day of dancing around the Blacktail Pack. Captured with a Canon 7D and 500/4.0L IS in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of + 2 at ISO400, f/4.0, and 1/640th of a second. The camera was handheld.

The Thunderer (el. 10554' [3217 m]) as seen from Thunderer Trailhead on a cloudy winter day in Yellowstone National Park. Captured with a Canon 5DII and 70-200/2.8L IS II + 1.4TC III in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of 0 at ISO400, f/11, and 1/250th of a second. The camera was resting on a beanbag.

A gray member of the Lamar Canyon Wolf Pack chases a cow elk from Soda Butte Cone clear across to Hitching Post in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park. Captured with a Canon 7D and 500/4.0L IS + 1.4TC III in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of - 1 at ISO400, f/7.1, and 1/1250th of a second. The camera was handheld.

A gray member of the Lamar Canyon Wolf Pack looks to re-cross the road after unsuccessfully chasing a cow elk from Soda Butte Cone clear across to Hitching Post in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park. Captured with a Canon 7D and 500/4.0L IS + 1.4TC III in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of + 1 1/3 at ISO400, f/7.1, and 1/800th of a second. The camera was mounted on a Gitzo 3540XLS tripod and Induro GHB2 gimbal head with custom long lens support.

I am sorry for the delay, and for the rather brief report from each of these trips.

p.s. we had a good amount of snow to start off the year, but then much of that melted and we failed to receive any more snow, but as of today it is snowing, and the forecast is for it to stay at or below zero with heavy snow falling for the next few days, so here's to winter finally arriving in the mountains.
