Evening at the Madison River Valley

10/21/2017
Evening of light snow with Shanna, Cheryl, Regina, & Katrina
Madison River Valley, Yellowstone

I’m using my Sony a6500 with a new Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS Full Frame E-Mount Lens.  The lens was both birthday and xmas present for me.  It’s AMAZING. I’ve never had anything like this for photos.  I’m so new at photography it’s all incredibly exciting. I started really working/studying in the spring of 2016 with a Nikon coolpix. I’d like to think that I’ve come a long ways, but I look at other peoples photos and recognize that I have such a long way to go.  You see the best of my best on this blog, but I know that I’m still fighting with learning true control of the options available on my camera.

Bison of various sizes. The smallest were the small red calves of early spring.
