Although there is no way I will ever get to see your beautiful national parks, I found your blog very interesting and informative as they always are. I am sure you had a wonderful time and you obviously produced some spectacular images that have managed to brighten this dull, rainy day. Thank you.

I should add an eleventh tip - always visit the gifts shops in the visitors center. You'd be amazed at the great "props" they sell!

I visited these wonderful places during my youth, about 35 years ago, when my company sent me from Italy to California to learn valuable knowledge for my job. I still have many slides of photos taken in these national parks. But they are no longer usable for producing good digital images ... Among your beautiful photos I can see no image of the "Ranger", the mythical figure always present in the national parks of the United States!

Great article! We're heading back to Yellowstone this summer. My inlaws live in that area so we've been many times. Always fun. Challenge of course for the stock photographer is to find a new angle on what gets shot a zillion times. Some people seem to only take pictures when they see other pull out their camera! LOL! Like an involuntary reaction. I used to live right next door to Acadia National Park in Maine for seven years. So close one day I got a letter from the park service warning me that one of my lawn chairs was on park property! Alas, I wasn't into stock then so I don't have many photos good enough to use.

BTW - I like the shot of the tour group in antelope canyon - most people don't know how difficult it is to get a shot without people. Often you see shots of it and you think - wow that is in the middle of nowhere but it was snapped in microseconds of people being there. At least I've read.

Thanks so much for the kind words everyone - I can't tell you how much they mean to me!

@baidas1950 you don't see any Ranger pictures because I was trying to take RF as much as possible - but I did interact with that "mysterious" group quite a bit. Amazing the enthusiasm and knowledge they have on the area - and so nice to speak with people who so obviously enjoy their jobs!

@peanutroaster shooting in Antelope Canyon was the most stressful photo op I've ever encountered. There were literally 100's of people all vying for the same shot - I felt like a light beam paparazzi - learned quickly to shoot above, below or behind people!
