Yellowstone Lake Yellowstone has lots of lakes and sulpher pits. It stinks but is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been and hope to return to. We were up well before sunrise every day to head out for photo ops. It was often overcast. Don't get discouraged. You can get some of your best shots in inclement weather! Use your imagination, angles, and natural props. This moody shot took me right into the shallows, it was about 30 degrees outside and misting. Even the ducks were hiding.
