Fan Creek - Yellowstone National Park

Fan Creek - July, 2006

A small but productive headwater tributary of the Gallatin River flows through expansive meadows and spring fed wetlands at 7,500' in the southern end of the Gallatin Range. Watch out for the giant anacondas. They seem to come out of nowhere back here.

Canon 17-40mm L Series glass complimented with a 77mm Tiffen wide angle circular polarizer mounted on a Canon EOS 300D SLR. The whole shootin' match is supported by a carbon fiber set of sticks & pan head built by Velbron. Aperture of f 7.1 with a shutter speed of 1/125 seconds @ ISO 100.

The Willie Fire outside of Red Lodge, MT back in 2000 gave me the willies though. I remember it like it was yesterday...
