This Is It, the Most Epic Photo of the Northern Lights Ever

Travel and Leisure - Sun, 02/04/2018 - 15:00
<p>Seeing the <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/slideshows/best-places-to-see-the-northern-lights" target="_blank">Northern Lights</a> in real life is nothing short of spectacular. Getting to watch a show put on by Mother Nature in some of the most remote corners of the world is certainly exhilarating, but for <a href="http://www.ollietaylorphotography.com/" target="_blank">photographer Ollie Taylor</a> that experience became even more magical when a rainbow broke out just as the auroras began to shine.</p><p>While out in Iceland <a href="https://www.instagram.com/ollietaylorphotography/" target="_blank">Taylor</a> was able to capture the image that includes a lake, a waterfall, a rainbow and the bright green aurora above.</p><p>“Just as the Sun drives weather on Earth, solar activity is responsible for disturbances in our space environment,” the <a href="http://www.esa.int/spaceinimages/Images/2018/01/Rainbow_aurora" target="_blank">European Space Agency wrote</a> about <a href="https://www.facebook.com/OllieTaylorPhotography" target="_blank">Taylor’s photo</a>. It added that this space weather activity gives rise to auroras, which are produced by “electrically charged atomic particles streaming from the Sun colliding with charged particles in our atmosphere.”</p><p>“I hunted for a clear sky patch in Iceland eager to shoot a ‘<a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/nature-travel/victoria-falls-africa" target="_blank">moon bow</a>.’ We drove some 600 kilometers north to get the clear skies in the Lake Mývatn area, and the Godafoss Waterfall,” Taylor <a href="http://www.esa.int/spaceinimages/Images/2018/01/Rainbow_aurora" target="_blank">told the ESA</a>. “Eventually, after hours of shooting, you could see full colour in the rainbow, luckily at an angle that also allowed the capture of the aurora when it gave us a display!”</p><p>Capturing an epic photo like this may be next to impossible to recreate, but you can go and check out the auroras for yourself all over the globe and give <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/photography/photographing-northern-lights" target="_blank">night photography a try</a>.</p><p>Right now is the perfect time to go see them as the auroras are typically at their height during the winter. Try and <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/nature-travel/best-places-to-see-northern-lights-march" target="_blank">plan a trip by the end of March</a> to destinations like Russia, Canada, <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/nature-travel/finland-when-to-see-northern-lights" target="_blank">Finland</a> and <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/nature-travel/iceland-when-to-see-northern-lights" target="_blank">Iceland</a> to have the best chances of spotting the Northern Lights. Just make sure to stay for at least two or three nights, that way you’ll likely get at least one night of clear skies. And don’t forget to pack your camera.</p>

The Best Times to Visit Yellowstone

Travel and Leisure - Sun, 02/04/2018 - 14:00
<p>As the first national park in the world, a <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/national-parks/yellowstone-national-park-service-verlyn-klinkenborg" target="_blank">trip to Yellowstone</a> offers travelers the chance to experience both stunning natural beauty as well as an important piece of history. Almost four million visitors travel to the park each year to see its famous hot springs and hundreds of geysers — including the legendary Old Faithful.</p><p>While an argument could be made for visiting during every season of the year, there are certain factors to consider when planning a visit to <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/national-parks/yellowstone-national-park-guide" target="_blank">Yellowstone National Park</a>.</p><h2>The Cheapest Time to Visit Yellowstone</h2><p>Flights to the nearest major airport in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, are typically cheapest between October and February, which is the park’s low season. Prices for lodging begin to drop after Labor Day, once the summer crowds have diminished and children are back in school. Keep in mind that road closures begin in late September or October depending on weather, so be sure to plan accordingly.</p><h2>The Best Times to Visit Yellowstone</h2><h3>The Best Times to Avoid Crowds</h3><p>Although many people are hesitant to plan outdoor-based vacations during the winter, it can sometimes be the most rewarding. When winter arrives at Yellowstone National Park, snow blankets the mountainous landscape — and leaves the most popular attractions blissfully crowd-free. For the adventurous (and those willing to brave an albeit biting cold), Yellowstone is home to some of the most overlooked backcountry skiing in the country. Just be sure to check for road closures well in advance, as they can hinder your attempts to visit Yellowstone.</p><h3>The Best Time to Visit Yellowstone for Wildlife</h3><p>Wildlife can be viewed year-round at Yellowstone, though the seasons will impact what species you see.</p><p>March and April are the best months to view bear, while the winter months are best for wolves and bighorn sheep. Elk, moose, bison, and mountain goats can be spotted during the summer months, which is also the park’s busiest season.</p><p>Fall, on the other hand, is a great time to see bear, elk, and raptors — while enjoying more mild weather. Be sure to maintain a safe distance when viewing wildlife for both your safety, in addition to the animals' wellbeing. The park specifically asks that visitors <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/national-parks/selfies-in-yellowstone" target="_blank">do not approach wildlife to take photographs</a> or selfies. </p><h2>The Best Time to Visit Yellowstone for Photography</h2><p>It can be argued that there is no bad time for photographers to make a pilgrimage to Yellowstone. But during peak season, there will definitely be other people in those shots. For travelers looking to photograph Yellowstone, it can be worthwhile to visit during the winter months, when the park is much less crowded (no families huddled around Old Faithful). The winter is also a beautiful time to photograph snowfall, and steam rising from the hot springs and geysers. </p><h3>The Best Weather in Yellowstone</h3><p>Due to its high elevation, the weather at Yellowstone can be unpredictable year-round. Spring and fall highs range from 30 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit, with lows sometimes approaching 0 degrees. Summer highs are usually between 70 and 80 degrees, though it's not unheard of for cold nights to bring frost and freezing temperatures.</p><p>As with all mountainous regions, the temperature can fluctuate greatly, depending on elevation. Average precipitation is fairly consistent across all seasons, meaning travelers don't need to worry about traveling during (or avoiding) a rainy season. </p><h2>The Worst Time to Visit Yellowstone</h2><p>Unless you're planning on skiing, winter may be one of the most uncomfortable times to visit Yellowstone, when the highs rarely exceed 20 degrees Fahrenheit.</p><p>Though if you'd rather bundle up than mingle with throngs of other travelers, winter can be preferable to summer, which is the busiest time of year at Yellowstone. </p>

Users can choose from a selection of about 600 unique cars around the country and rent them out directly from their owners.</p><p><strong>Related:</strong> <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-tips/ground-transportation/how-get-cheaper-car-rentals" target="_blank">3 Secret Ways to Get Cheaper Car Rentals</a></p><p>“The popular vehicles are classics that are easy to drive and iconic, cars like Ford Mustangs and Porsche 911s,” Peter Zawadzki, the app’s creator, <a href="https://www.afar.com/magazine/driveshare-is-the-airbnb-of-cool-vintage-cars?" target="_blank">told AFAR</a>. “Cars that put a smile on everyone’s face.”</p><p>However, users can also find Lamborghinis, <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/cruises/norwegian-cruise-lines-ferrari-racetrack" target="_blank">Ferraris</a>, Porsches, Jaguars and many more iconic brands of car. The cars range from about $100 to $2,500 per day, depending on make and model.</p><p><strong>Related:</strong> <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/worlds-best/car-rental-agencies" target="_blank">The Best Car Rental Agencies for Your Money</a></p><p>Customers sign up for an account on DriveShare, wait for verification from the app’s insurance companies and then can sign up to drive. Once customers and owners reach an agreement, they meet for an exchange, tour of the car and key exchange.</p><p>Owners may also choose to rent out their cars solely for “static use,” if you just want to stage a photoshoot around a cool, vintage vehicle.</p><p>Those who like the idea of peer-to-peer car-sharing can also peruse apps like <a href="https://turo.com/" target="_blank">Turo</a> or <a href="https://www.getaround.com/" target="_blank">Getaround</a> to find other cars owned by locals while traveling.</p>
