Videoing Yellowstone: Part 7

Serendipity

Photographers spend a lot of time waiting for shots that never happen, and thinking about shots they missed. But sometimes shots spring up on you with no warning whatever. Initially Mike drove right past this moose sighting near Norris Geyser Basin, thinking that the shadows and lighting were bad. After a while of driving up the road and seeing nothing interesting, he decided to turn back to the moose.

Moose, YNP (3)

This black bear sow spent most of the day asleep in the grass. Mike was ready to pack up in frustration when she rolled onto her back and started lifting first one paw and then the other, looking for all the world like a beachgoer languidly examining her nails.

A lethargic black bear lazily examines her paws. "When you're filming wildlife you're looking for those moments where they do something, you know, something. And that was sort of different."

Nearing nightfall, and too dark to film, Mike had packed all of his equipment away and was driving to camp when the sun dipped below the clouds right above the horizon. He managed to catch this image of the already set sun firing the underbelly of the dark clouds.

After sunset, YNP

To film the sunset, Mike parked near a herd of bison. With the sun set and truly too dark to film anything, Mike watched as the herd crossed the road, snorting, trotting and kicking up dust—more energy than had seen from bison all week. Fortunately, he had his camera out to capture the silhouette of this buffalo, enveloped by a cloud of dust.

"It's almost too dark to film...and all of the animals come to life."

    Superb! I LOVE the way Tara presents this brilliantly simple yet so powerful practice. Decades ago (I’m 67), I dubbed my Inner Critic Mother Superior Mary Catharine of Sour Snippy Sabotage, and even drew her portrait. She hushes up when acknowledged, most of the time. If she rails on, I thank her for her cautious concern for me, and offer her a hug; this ‘dissolves’ her as if she’s the Witch in the Wizard of Oz. Never knew how to share this technique with others, but Tara has nailed it with such finesse. Thanks for posting this clip. Now I CAN share the technique![]

    Ben, Sam, and Hannah are addicted to “Honey, Honey”. I have to play it over and over in the van. I’m worried it’s a little too racy for them. Not that they get it, but someday they’re gonna tell their Gramma Willems she’s a “doggone beast” and… Ikes.

    Good call on the check-ins possibly being annoying. That’s what I’ve noticed from some people when I post my check-ins to facebook. But I wonder if it’s kind of just a case of the vocal minority? Like the idea that the squeaky wheel gets the grease while the wheels working fine get ignored. Either way, I don’t always post my Gowalla check-ins to facebook anymore.

    The main benefit is the potnetial for long term growth above the rate of inflation. Historically, stocks and shares in general have almost always outperformed the other asset classes (cash, fixed interest and property) over the long term.Of course, as mentioned above, there is a lot of risk involved and you could potnetially lose money if the company you invest in doesn’t do well.If you are unsure of what to invest in, I would suggest you look at Mutual Funds.Mutual Funds basically pool your money together with lots of other investors (totalling millions and sometimes billions of pounds/dollars). This money is used to invest in not just one company, but spread across lots of different companies. So this will be less risky than investing all your money into just one company.Each mutual fund has a professional fund manager who will ultimately decide which companies to invest in when to sell and invest in something else.There are thousands of funds out there, all specialising in different areas. Unfortunately, I’m not sure where you should look for them in the US, as I live in the UK, but I’m sure you can get some more information from Google.Hope this helps.
