Yellowstone River, Yellowstone National Park - "Who fathers the Drops of Dew?"


Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain,
and a path for the thunderstorm,
to water a land where no one lives,
an uninhabited desert,
to satisfy a desolate wasteland
and make it sprout with grass?
Does the rain have a father?
Who fathers the drops of dew?

Job 38:25-28

Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park - "He Covers the Sky with Clouds"


He covers the sky with clouds;

he supplies the earth with rain

and makes grass grow on the hills.

Psalm 147:8

Yellowstone National Park - “The Lord Looks at the Heart”


But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

1 Samuel 16:7

Yellowstone River - “The Wolf will Live with the Lamb”


The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them.

Isaiah 11:6

Wandering River

To The River

Fair river! in thy bright, clear flow
Of crystal, wandering water,
Thou art an emblem of the glow
Of beauty- the unhidden heart-
The playful maziness of art
In old Alberto's daughter;

But when within thy wave she looks-
Which glistens then, and trembles-
Why, then, the prettiest of brooks
Her worshipper resembles;
For in his heart, as in thy stream,
Her image deeply lies-
His heart which trembles at the beam
Of her soul-searching eyes.
Edgar Allen Poe

Artistic Waters Yellowstone River


To capture the colors of the landscape, I used a dry brush technique in the above photos.  The water has streaks of green as well as deep blue running fiercely over the rocks. I walked a trail along side of the rapids.  There are too many rocks for white water rafting.  This concludes my adventure at Yellowstone.  We only visited from the South Entrance up to Washburn Mountain Range.  It was a tiresome full day drive from Jackson Hole to Yellowstone and back.  I could not take photos during the golden hours of 2 hours after sunrise and two hours before sunset.  That is the best natural light for a landscape picture.  The bright sun will fade out the brilliancy of colors of the landscape no matter what filters you use.  The pigments of oil painting can bring out the gorgeous colors better then any photograph.

Yellowstone River Moments of Serenity


The river does have some areas where it is calm, peaceful and serene before it reaches the Grand Canyon area.

Yellowstone's Grand Canyon

These pictures are of different angles of the Grand canyon.  It is roughly 20 miles long and is the primary geologic feature in the Canyon District. The aqua color water of the Yellowstone River against the golden canyon made a spectacular scene.

A Winding Yellowstone River


The Yellowstone River curves and winds its way through the valley.  A bison resting among the wildflowers was a lovely sight to behold.  Such a large and powerful animal resting peacefully among the flowers.
