I love Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming – with its unique geology and fantastic wildlife. The opportunities for photography in the park are excellent. I could spend years photographing this place and never get tired of it. Among my favorite locations, are the geysers and thermal areas around Old Faithful.
One of the things I love about Yellowstone hot springs are the vivid colors. The colors are brilliant, especially during the afternoon hours when the sun in high in the sky. I took this shot around midday, and used a polarizer to bring out the colors in the foreground and the sky. I shot from this angle to minimize harsh shadows. I waited until the sunlight brightened the evergreens in the background, and the foreground was shaded by a thin cloud cover.
Who says you can get good photos at midday? ;)
