Bison in heavy snowstorm
Photographer: Fred Wasmer
Location: Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
During a recent winter trip to Yellowstone National Park, I came across this bison lying in a meadow during a heavy snowstorm. I liked to way the snow fills the air and sticks to the bison and the surrounding vegetation; I think it emphasizes the harsh conditions that Yellowstone bison endure during the winter. Focusing for this shot was tricky, as the camera's autofocus was locking onto the large snowflakes falling in the foreground.
