YNP Fall Photo Festival Celebrates 10th Year

Fall Photo Fest

Yellowstone National Park marked its tenth anniversary Fall Photo Festival Wednesday evening, drawing 16 professional and amateur photographers who displayed over 400 digital images of national park scenes to those in attendance.  Festival Coordinator Rich Jehle says participants at the West Yellowstone showing were fromas close as in town to those from out of state.  Jehle says there were photographers from Bozeman and Livingston, Montana, some from Jackson and Laramie, Wyoming and one from San Diego.  Over the last ten years, Jehle says the event has gained a broader appeal for participants from different geographic and professional backgrounds.  Jehle says what made the show most interesting was how the people from different walks of life viewed the parks through their lenses.  Jehle says participants this year spoke of the challenges presented by all the smoke in the air.  He says several photographers spoke of efforts in the Tetons this year where they are particularly attracted by the fall colors.  However, he says they said they had to take different approaches this year because of the smoke.  One example Jehle says was along Mormon Row where photographers are attracted by sunrise at the Moulton Barn with the Tetons behind it.  They found they had more usable shots this year by turning around and putting the sun rising through the smoke behind the barn.  Jehle says the Park also does a photo festival of winter scenes in March; and while the fall festival has no limitation on the times of year of the photos, the winter festival specifies the photos be winter scenes.
