On my way to photograph wildlife in the pre-dawn hours in Yellowstone, I was forced to change plans due to a road closure. Rather than turn around and go back, thus missing the light of the pending sunrise, I decided to take the road less traveled and head up the mountain. The rising sun illuminated a landscape of wildflowers all around. I couldn't pass up the opportunity...although that was not what I had planned for the day.
