Shadow Cowboy and Hat. I saw this hat sitting out in one of the steaming pools in Yellowstone National Park. As I tried to figure out how to make it into a composition for an image I noticed folks shadows pass near the hat as they walked by on the boardwalk . I asked a tall guy with cowboy boots to hold so I could get the image.

Upon arrival in Jackson, the ANPAT participants were split into four groups, each with their own van (with a volunteer driver and navigator). Each van had ~8 photographers fully loaded with gear. The space in the van was tight, and I felt like I was sitting in a narrow commuter jet. The vans had schedules to go to different locations so as not to get in each other’s way… Our van did a lot of Bison hunting while traveling through Yellowstone National Park. The first image of one of our Bison hunters, and the second a shy Bison trying to hide behind some grass.
