An earlier post I wrote about the road to Yellowstone, I shared the stop at the Crazy Horse Memorial. Here I have selected a portion of the hot springs, geysers and a waterfall that captured my photographic eyes at Yellowstone.
The colors are amazing. I did enhance the waterfall to bring out the colors. The other images were so vibrant and colorful, I could hardly believe my eyes.
With tons of people in these parks, it’s also a wonder, I can capture these images without many of them near me.
When I did stop to carefully compose a photograph with my tripod, I attracted other photographers and people with their phone cameras who positioned their cameras above me, next to me and around me. Ha.
One photographer and I laughed, yet we didn’t share a common language. He followed me around and he stopped whenever I stopped to set up my tripod as he captured his photo alongside me.
“With photography, there doesn’t have to be a similar language to enjoy the beauty of what comes out of the camera and the craft of the creations.” ML
“Geysers are hot springs that intermittently spout a column of hot water and steam into the air. This action is caused by the water in deep conduits beneath a geyserapproaching or reaching the boiling point. At 300 metres (about 1,000 feet) below the surface, the boiling point of water increases to approximately 230 °C (450 °F) because of the increased pressure of the overlying water. As bubbles of steam or dissolved gas begin to form, rise, and expand, hot water spills from the geyser’s vent, lowering the pressure on the water column below. ” Quoted from:
Yellowstone is amazing place to visit, even with barren forests from past fires.
Waiting for Old Faithful to erupt or waiting for Bison to cross your path, it is all worth seeing. It’s a park my mom visited before my time and the visit I longed for remains a special memory in my heart.
