Mule Deer Doe and Fawn. Canon R5, 400mm, handheld, 1/640 @f8, ISO 1600 This was an interesting moment back in August as I was checking out the Upper Terrace Loop Drive near Mammoth Hot Springs. I’ve lived in or near Yellowstone National Park for almost 20 years and had never seen mule deer actually walking through the terraces. That of course doesn’t mean it’s never happened or isn’t common, just that I personally haven’t seen it before. The adults were licking the moisture off the dead trees, presumably to get minerals deposited by the steam. The fawn wasn’t too sure about walking around all ..read more

Summer Wildflowers above Tree Line. Canon R5, 1600, tripod, 1/50 @f16, ISO 800 I recently added over 30 new images to my website, all photographed in 2023, including this one. That also means I took over 30 old images off in order to make room. This image was taken in July at sunset from above tree line in the Centennial Range of Idaho. The backlighting on the wildflowers was beautiful and fortunately there were some nice clouds in the sky to balance out the image. Even though I was using a tripod, I was still down on my belly to photograph this scene. I had to be very careful with where I mov ..read more

Yellow-bellied Marmot. Canon R5, 400mm (cropped), beanbag, 1/1600 @f5.6, ISO 1000 Stop right there! Today’s the last day to get in orders for Christmas! Actually marmots can’t talk, but it’s still true. This image was taken back in August and this fuzzy guy was sunning him on a boulder and had a big yawn and stretched out. That sun sure can feel good and helps one to relax. He went back to napping after this which doesn’t provide any great photos but this one sure was fun. And look at those teeth ..read more

Going to the Sun Mountain. Canon R5, 17mm, handheld, 1/320 @ f11, ISO 800 I updated my website earlier this week by adding twelve new images including this one which was one of five from Glacier National Park. My website can be found linked on this page or by going to http://www.stevehinchphotography.com. This image shows Going to the Sun Mountain along Glacier National Park’s famous Going to the Sun Road. This peak, at 9,647 feet high, dominates many views from the popular park road but this colorful stand of aspens make this point of view on of my autumn favorites ..read more

Yellow Mountain. Canon R5, 260mm, handheld, 1/1000 @ f11, ISO 800 I hope everyone in the U.S. had a safe and happy Thanksgiving this week and that everyone else had a great week as well. I’m still sharing photos from Glacier National Park from my fall trip with this one showing Yellow Mountain rising over a very colorful hillside of autumn aspen. There’s only about two weeks left for Christmas orders to be placed and have them arrive by Christmas, so please get those orders in if you plan on it. It’s been slow so far, and it’s been a slow year in general, but the last day is still December 10t ..read more

American Pika. Canon R5, 400mm, handheld, 1/2500 @ f5.6, ISO 1600 While the highlight of a very enjoyable autumn season was a trip up to Glacier National Park, wildlife was hard to come by for me. In fact, from about mid-summer, I found myself almost exclusively photographing scenery and landscapes. I took this as a sign and just went with it as I was coming across some gorgeous scenes anyway. But on one of my hikes in Glacier, I came across this cooperative pika. Pikas are typically found in high elevation habitat and this one was no exception, though I do know of a few places where they can ..read more

Red Fox in the first snow of the season. Canon R5, 400mm, handheld, 1/320 @ 5.6 ISO 1600 We had the first snow of the season just before Halloween and while most of it has slowly melted off, it is a reminder that winter, along with the holiday season, is near. As such I always mention ordering for Christmas and this year, in order to ensure your orders from my website arrive in time for Christmas, the last day to order and ensure arrive is December 10th. Anything after that may not arrive in time for Christmas day. This fox was the first one I’ve photographed in a while and it was fully decked ..read more

Late Autumn Aspens and the Grand. Canon R5, 175mm, handheld, 1/1000 @ f11, ISO 800 I essentially finished up my autumn photography with a late trip down to Grand Teton National Park. I knew I had missed the peak of autumn color, which was fine because it also meant I missed the peak of the crowds too. Grand Teton posted visitation numbers and September has actually become the third busiest month of the year now, behind July and August and ahead of June. My goal was wildlife which I struck out on badly but I was pleased to find some late colors still holding on in a few places including this lo ..read more

Cliff Geyser in Fog. Canon R5, 90mm, handheld, 1/500 @ f8, ISO 400 I meant to post on Sunday to continue my autumn photo series but simply forgot. Since yesterday, Tuesday, October 31st, was the last day most of the roads into Yellowstone were open for the summer season, I thought I’d share a photo from this summer in Yellowstone. This is Cliff Geyser backlit by the morning sun in some thick fog. I was doing a book signing at the Old Faithful Inn but stopped here around sunrise to do some photography. Other places the fog was extremely thick but here, there was enough of a break to create the ..read more

Clements Mountain from Going to the Sun Road. Canon R5, 40mm, handheld, 1/320 @ f11, ISO 1600 Despite the incredible conditions the morning I left to drive up to Glacier National Park, I did pull myself away and embark on the six plus hour drive. Glacier wouldn’t disappoint, which is what motivated me to leave. The colors and fresh snow were stunning while the lingering clouds made for some dramatic skies. Eventually the clouds would give way to clear skies which did lead to me leaving a day earlier than planned to come back home but not before I was treated to some incredible moments such as ..read more
