Yellowstone National Park Pictures For Sale

Updated on August 20, 2014

Beautiful and Inspiring Yellowstone National Park Pictures

In 2010 I made the trip to Yellowstone National Park for the first time in many years. I had forgotten just how magical this park can be. While I think everyone should visit Yellowstone at least once in their lifetime, I suppose the trip is too much for some people.

I realized that for some, photographers who've made the trip for them would be of greater interest. Below you'll see the work of many photographers. All images are available on

Hayden Valley lies on the east side of Yellowstone National Park. The valley here is a common gathering place for the bison during rut and tourist traffic is often stopped by bison crossing the road.

Here you see the Yellowstone River winding through that area at sunset. This photograph was taken by John Elk III. It is available in a variety of sizes.

The West Thumb Geyser Basin is one of several major tourist sites within the park although it is actually one of the smaller geyser basins. It is a very scenic spot during any season. It lies along the edge of Yellowstone Lake and has a variety of geothermal features like hot springs, mud pots, fumaroles and geysers as well.

Here it is seen in winter, with bison.

Photographer Roy Rainford shot this picture of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and one of the waterfalls created by the Yellowstone River as it flows through the area. The upper falls are 109 ft high and the lower falls 308 ft high.

Tourists can see this area from several vantage points along the rim roads.

This photograph is also available in a variety of sizes.

The Yellowstone River is the longest undammed river in the US. It flows through the park and is responsible for the formation of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. It is show here during wintertime.

Photographer Norber Rosing captured this image.

Like the other photos on this page, it is available in a variety of sizes.

While Yellowstone is great for hiking, it's also perfect for many other activities including cross country skiing in winter, and fly fishing.

In this image captured by photographyer Randy Olson, viewers can experience the serene view of the Yellowstone river in the evening as steam escapes from nearby geothermal features.

Yellowstone can seem very mysterious with steam rising from the ground, mud pots boiling, and geysers gushing, but it also seems otherworldly thanks to the vivid colors that visitors will find.

In this image taken by photographer Carol Polich, viewers can glimpse the Black Sand Basin and bacteria mat as they are positioned along the boardwalk. It's just one example of the extraordinary landscape of the park.

The wildlife at Yellowstone National Park is also fascinating. Bear, bison, elk, deer, big horned sheep, moose, wolves, coyotes, and more draw crowds when they appear.

Here you can see the silhouette of an elk as it lurks near Castle Geyser amidst the rising steam. This shot was taken by Jim Zuckerman.

This image also puts viewers along a boardwalk, but this one looks out across the Upper Geyser Basin .

This image was captured by photographer Roy Rainford.

As most know, bison or buffalo were abundant in North America in the early 1800's but were hunted almost to extinction. Now Yellowstone is estimated to be home to over 3,500 bison. The calves are born in spring and early summer and rut occurs in July and August.

This photograph of a bison was captured by photographer Colin Brynn.

Elk are one of the other large animals that inhabit Yellowstone National Park. The bull elk (males) average 600 to 800lbs in weight.

They are most commonly seen in the early A.M. or at dusk when they wander from the shelter of the trees, to graze in the meadows. There are said to be 30,000 elk in residence within the park during the summer months.

This bull elk was photographed by Drew Rush.

There are of course a number of waterfalls in Yellowstone National Park that are worthy of memorializing in art and photographs and Tower Falls, seen here, is certainly among them.

Photographer Tom Murphy captured this image of the Yellowstone River plunging over the 132ft falls.

Yellowstone provides some amazing views regardless of the time of year. The heavy blanket of snow covering the forest and the lone bison, show viewers that this is a natural place, not one where man rules.

This photo was taken by Michael Melford.

This is another example of the vibrant colors that bring Yellowstone to life. The deep aqua Morning Glory pool has clear water that allows visitors to peer into its depths while the vivid white and yellow sands provide a stunning contrast.

Photographer Michael Melford also provided this image.

In the morning and evening, many animals become more visible as they graze on the grasses of Yellowstone National Park. This majestic bull elk is apparently enjoying a full meal.

This image is provided by Holger Leue.

Yellowstone in autumn is also stunning. This image provided by photographer Bob Winsett shows the foliage along the Lewis River.

This photographic print, like most of the others on this page, is available in a variety of sizes.

Photographer Nobert Rosing provides us with this aerial view of the Yellowstone River winding through the landscape with Yellowstone Lake as the backdrop.

Geysers are the primary draw for millions of visitors to the park. Yellowstone travel however offers much more than that. Mud pots, steam vents, furmaroles, and many other unique features are to be found. However, no collection of Yellowstone National Park pictures would be complete without some up close shots of geysers.

This is the Great Fountain Geyser which is located in the Lower Geyser Basin at the park. The photographer once again, is Michael Melford.

This magnificient autumn scene shows a brilliant display of colorful foliage alongside the banks of the Yellowstone River with the Absaroka range providing the backdrop.

Tom Murphy provides this image.

The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is one of the most prominent features in the park. There are many vantage points along the rim drives that offer a view of the steep, colorful canyon walls and the cascading water.

In this photographic print, viewers gaze over the top of the lower falls, down the canyon, as the Yellowstone River rushes below. The nearly ever present rainbow at the base of the falls can be seen.

This picture was taken by photographer John Elk III.

The hot springs at Yellowstone create some very beautiful formations with their mineral deposits. This image, provided by photographer Carol Polich is of Canary Springs at the Mammoth Hot Springs. It's an upclose, detailed look at the mineral deposits there.

The super volcano beneath Yellowstone creates a great variety of geothermal features. This is another look at one of the colorful pools that can be found there.

Photographer Aaron McCoy provides this image of Sapphire Pool.

In this photographic print, viewers can get a broader view of Canary Springs at Mammoth Hot Springs.

Limestone formed more than 370 million years ago and although covered by rock after volcanic eruptions long ago, the limestone in this area is exposed. Because of sulfur dependent bacteria, the formations at Canary Spring have a yellow color.

Photographer Geoff Renner provides this image.

From the standpoint of the shore, viewers can look across the placid water at the Wind River Range in this photographic print. The Wind River Range is a part of the Rocky Mountains.

Photographer Gavriel Jecan captured this image.

Big horned sheep are another inhabitant of Yellowstone National Park in the higher elevations.

This photograph was taken by Amy & Ch Wiley/Wales.

Another popular canyon in Yellowstone National Park is the Firehole River Canyon, The Firehole Falls, shown in this photograph, can be found here. The falls is 40 feet high and at it's peak in spring and early summer.

Photographer Adam Jones shot this picture.

This photographic print provides a different look of the Hot Springs at West Thumb, toward the southern end of the park. This one taken at dawn, accentuates the mysterious look of the rising steam rather than the brilliant colors of the pools.

This photograph is provided by Jean Brooks.

This photograph provides a view of another portion of the Mammoth Hot Springs. This is Minerva Springs with the familiar stair step mineral deposits.

Geoff Renner is once again the photographer.

Photographer Roy Rainford gives us a closer look at the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.

Here, rather than being at the top of either the Upper or Lower Falls, we are placed closer to the surface of the rushing Yellowstone

River and the walls of the canyon.

Along with the many geothermal features, Yellowstone offers forests as well. In this photographic print a Great Gray Owl is featured as it perches in an evergreen.

Charles Melton is the photographer.

Photographer Adam Jones gives us another look at Canary Spring at the Mammoth Hot Springs.

The bright sunlight and deep blue sky makes the colors especially stunning. But for those who prefer the eerie feel that the hotsprings can offer, the dead trees provide that touch.

While they don't offer the interesting textures and colors or the spray of water and stream of the hot springs, geysers, and some of the other formations, the mud pots or mud pools are very unique and interesting. The clay is water saturated and when hot steam builds beneath it, it bubbles and sprays the sediment.

This upclose image of a boiling mud pool was captured by photographer Tony Waltham.

Viewers get another look at the Black Sands Basin here in this photographic print. Of course these pools are only one of many geothermal features, you can learn interesting facts about hydorthermal features at Yellowstone online.

Tony Waltham is once again the photographer.

Photographer Alison Wright captured this enchanting winter scene of a geyser at Yellowstone National Park.

This photographic print provides yet another glimpse of the a hot springs from the main terrace, complete with rising steam and dead trees.

James Hager is the photographer.

This final image is a very peaceful one. It shows Yellowstone at Refuge Point in wintertime. The stillness of this snow covered landscape can eaisly be imagined.

Alison Wright is once again the photographer.

      Darn, I grew up in that area and only have one good photo of Yellowstone, one of the Morning Glory Pool in 1965 that I also featured on a Squidoo lens. But the neat thing about your article is that it's a super example of a great Squidoo lens. Mine aren't too good, but after seeing your, I'm going to do better.

      I've been to Yellowstone at least 4 times, but it's been awhile - I think my last visit was in the early 2000's. It's time to return. I miss Yellowstone. Enjoyed your collection of photos by these talented photographers.

      Those are some impressive pictures. I remember seeing the bubbling mud and geysers at Rotorua in New Zealand, they were amazing. That was before the days of digital cameras though, my photographs are probably ruined by now.
