Gibbon Falls, Yellowstone National Park

Twitter
Gibbon Falls, Yellowstone National Park, WY
Yellowstone National Park is not just about geysers and hot springs, it is also about wildlife, waterfalls, and beautiful vast open spaces. Let me first share with you one of the waterfalls we experienced in Yellowstone that is easily accessed by the roadside. This is waterfall without the hike. Later, I will share some waterfalls with the hike.
Gibbon Falls
Before coming to Yellowstone, we did not know about this waterfall. However, on our way to The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, we spotted this place. We parked by the roadside pull out that is along the stretch of the Grand Loop road between Madison and Norris Junction, about 5 miles East of Madison. The parking lot is small, however, the cars come and go so it is not hard to park. I shoot these pictures without a tripod and a filter, however, I used the railings as support, otherwise, I do not think I can shoot in slow shutter speed without blurring because I always have a hard time steadying my hands. Because the flow of the waterfall here is not as powerful, I found it well suited for silken shot or slow shutter speed shots. Despite having no ND filter, I was able to shoot with slow shutter speed in mid-day because of the tall trees that give partial shade to the falls. The trees filtered out the harsh sunlight for me. :)

I just took a break from my geysers and hot springs post, but I still have several geyser basin and hot springs area to be shared. :) Meanwhile, you may want to check out my previous posts on Yellowstone:
