The sun setting on our campsite in the Bighorn National Forest. The shadow from the ridge to the West was moving quickly towards our tent.
This was our second night of camping while traveling the Sportsman Lake Trail through the Gallatin Mountains in Yellowstone. Our campsite was next to Sportsman Lake and our headlamp lit it up like a light bulb. We had a clear, crisp and amazingly beautiful night. The silhouette of the ridge around Sportsman Lake really made you feel small, especially at night with the Milky Way shining so brightly overhead. I didn't have a tripod with me and took some practice shots with a timer delay while resting the camera in different positions on a rock. I was so excited when I saw this one and think it's the best shot I've ever taken.
After a day of driving around the Lamar Valley in the cold rain, the skies opened up and the bison rejoiced.
