On this years Yellowstone trip I spent quite a bit more time photographing scenery. Landscape photography is very different from photographing wildlife. When photographing wildlife much of your concern is to get the wildlife into your view finder hopefully in some descent light. Since most scenery does not really move, it becomes a lot more a matter of artistic expression when you are out doing landscape photography.
Because I was photographing a lot of static subjects this year, I spent a lot of time playing around with different shutter speed and aperture settings on this trip. A lot of the pictures did not turn out but that is the nice thing about shooting digital. I did like how this picture came out. This is Tower Creek shot at a shutter speed of 1/4 of a second. The slower shutter speed is what the picture the blurred look that gives the viewer a feeling for the motion of the water. Some photographers shoot rapids like this at even slower shutter speed but since I did not have a remote or cable release for the shutter it would be difficult to shoot any slower with out having some shake when the shutter release button on the camera was pushed.
