You are in luck if you liked the previous set of images on the Ravens we saw in Yellowstone National Park (link here). Yes, it’s another dose of those dark winged demons and to be honest, the trusty companion of the ONLY ‘clown’ related character I can actually tolerate… Eric Draven. For starters, I tried recreate one of my favorite pictures from the last time we were at Yellowstone.
It do not think it came out as dramatic as the other one (which is now hanging in our living room), but definitely not the worst shot I’ve ever taken. A little brighter background would probably have made it pop a little more but he was having none of my “please move over here” requests.
My close up shots received a few comments on the last post so figured a few more wouldn’t hurt. This one is a little more stoic but shooting against the bright blue sky wreaked havoc on the exposure. I backed it down a tad, but lost some of the eye detail in the resulting shadows. For some reason it gives me the feeling that a large tear will emerge from its eye followed by some public service announcement to not pollute.
The following was a once in a lifetime shot of a UFO hovering over Ol’ Faithful in some kind of super secret refueling process. Well, that was what it was until this damn raven photobombed my shot… and thanks to this inconsiderate birdbrain.. NOBODY believes me.
