Bison of Yellowstone NP


Bison Romance

       Bison are such large, yet wonderful animals. One can find them scattered throughout Yellowstone National Park. They are often in the fields grazing and occasionally found occupying both lanes of narrow mountainous roads. While visiting a few lesser geysers, I found a perfect pair of Bison slowly grazing with one another. I could not help but think of them being on a date. I found the scene very flattering for the two of them, the glowing yellow hues of the fore-ground and middle-ground provided a nice contrast to help the two stand out. While a deep blue hue of a river graced the back-ground, giving the composition a touch of movement, as well as, displaying the perfect location that the two had found together. I hope you enjoy this intimate portrait of these two very incredible animals.
