Landscape Photography in the Great Potato State of Idaho
Idaho has been my home for the past 3 1/2 years. When I first moved here from Alaska, I was honestly a little disappointed. It seemed very flat and brown. However, as I have adventured to places around my college town, I’ve fallen in love with this state. There are so many gems. From the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone, to random drives around town, I love the incredible skies and fields. I was very excited to go to Yellowstone for the first time ever! It definitely took me long enough to get there, but it didn’t disappoint. We had a herd of buffalos cross the road on our way and stopped to take some pictures of the beautiful Tetons on the way. One of my favorite places was a little stretch of land filled with little geysers. The colors of the water were gorgeous and I loved the clouds above them.
The last picture is from a beautiful spot called Crest Creek. It’s a short hike with a beautiful view overlooking a river and the valley. If you hit it right at sunset it’s so peaceful.
There’s a lot more than potatoes’ to enjoy in the great state of Idaho! (: If you’re in the area and want more ideas of where to shoot, check out this link.
