I love the geology at Yellowstone National Park. It provides breathtaking photographic opportunities. This is a simple image of the steam rising from one of the hot springs.
Steam and Mist really light up when they are lit from behind or from the side. Back-lighting can be hard to deal with because it can be very direct, but side-lighting isn’t too difficult. The steam in this shot was lit from the side. The light brings out the textures in the steam, the ground, and the mountain beyond. The beautiful light fills the frame with the textures and colors of the steam.
