Yellowstone Winter Wildlife with Cindy Goeddel

Winter Wildlife Galore! Yes, this is absolutely the best Yellowstone Winter Wildlife Photography Workshop. An all-inclusive FIRST CLASS package, this intense photography workshop includes meals, lodging and all the instruction you desire. Dial your mode to M and start exposing perfectly for wild subjects in snow. We will spend 3 days photographing the wildlife of the Lamar Valley and 4 days photographing deep in the interior of Yellowstone. Although we will see and photograph many scenic wonders on our journey, we will spend the majority of our time photographing winter wildlife. Each morning we will depart before 7:00 am and will not return until dark. A box lunch and snacks will be provided each day. Our private coaches and vehicles allow us to stay on location for extended periods and to maximize each wildlife encounter. In the evenings we will continue to eat and breathe photography! Settle into your comfy room, as we stay all 7 nights at the Best Western Hotel in Gardiner Montana, from where we can access both Lamar and Hayden Valleys.

Our privately chartered 12 passenger snow-coaches will carry just four photographers each. We will have complete freedom to travel to different areas of the interior depending on recent wildlife sightings and weather. Perhaps Hayden Valley for fox, otter, ermine, bison and trumpeter swan; or the Madison River for bobcat, bull elk and fishing coyotes. We have 4 full days to photograph wildlife in the interior among stunning wintery backgrounds.

On the Lamar Valley days we may expect to see bighorn sheep, pronghorn, moose, fox, mule deer, bull elk, ermine, wolves and eagles.

Wildlife photographed last year during January included: wolves, bobcat, ermine, coyote, trumpeter swan, otter, bison, fox, bull elk, pronghorn, moose, bighorn sheep, mule deer, marten, bald eagle, golden eagle, and lots of waterfowl.

Where Cats Swim and Dogs Climb Trees

The Winter Bobcats of Yellowstone

Story and Photography by Cindy Goeddel

 

Bobcats are good swimmers and tree climbers and very, very, patient. The bobcat hunts by stealth, but delivers a deathblow with a leaping pounce that can span 10 feet. Concealed between a rock and a log in the Madison River, this feline waited and watched the river flow, alert and hoping for an unwary duck or swan to drift within reach. © Cindy Goeddel
