Theodore Roosevelt National Park Photo Workshop Day 2

9/18/2012 Tuesday.
Chuck Haney is a professional nature photographer and writer.  If you would like to see some of his work click here.

Chuck lives in Whitefish, Montana and is well-known across the country for his nature and sport photography.  His work includes layouts and covers for prominent magazines and journals.  He has published many books and instructs professional photographers, as well as novices like us, in photo workshops across the country.  He has six workshops planned for 2013.  If you have ever thought about taking a photo workshop, we highly recommend Chuck Haney.  

Wild horses were one of our subjects this morning.   They were actually a little bored with us.  There are so many visitors that to to the park and photograph them that they have become somewhat habituated.
Jeanne was just about to take this "not-so-perfect" shot of Rabbit Brush when Michelle walked into her frame.  It turned out to be accidentally "perfect"!!

It took a minute or two to focus on the "ball" of limbs instead of the leaves.  Sometimes auto focus isn't what it's cracked up to be!!

The Prairie Dogs are abundant in TRNP.  This little guy had something in his hand he was nibbling on.  They are so cute!!

 There are many formations in the badlands of TRNP.  These are just a few.

 If you would like to see more, Chuck Haney has a photo book on Theodore Roosevelt National Park that you may be interested in purchasing.

 You never know what the evening sun will bring.  This is one of Ed's shots of the sunset.  No manipulation in color.  It was one of the most spectacular sunsets we have seen.

After the sunset.  A crescent moon shines down on a buffalo just below the frame.  It was too dark to photograph him, but we did get a shot of the moon!!

Today was a great day, not just for photographing the beauty of TRNP, but also for enjoying the beauty that God has bestowed on us with our good friends, the Kreisberg family.  We are saddened that tomorrow morning will be our last session, but hopefully, we will be back next year!!
