Churning Cauldron and Sulfur Cauldron in Yellowstone National Park. Quick trip around the Mud Volcano boardwalk. Short walk to see several hot springs.
Late afternoon light on the clouds above Yellowstone Lake. Seeing the way the clouds were hanging over the water led me back to the tripod for the sunset photos previously posted.
Sunset at Yellowstone Lake. Nice evening with some color bouncing off the clouds and directional light on the mountains. The lake itself is massive, 110 miles of shoreline.
Named Artist Point because it was thought to be the location painter Thomas Moran created his work. Later shown to be incorrect but the overlook is still a great spot to check out Lower Falls. The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is approximately 24 miles long heading downstream from the waterfall.
Pulled off roadside to get both of these photos. Elk laying on a hillside and a great grey owl sitting in a tree branch. Neither very impressive from a photography standpoint but worth documenting for myself.
One last photo from the terraces at Mammoth Hot Springs. Similar composition in black and white previously posted. Time to continue the journey through Yellowstone National Park.
Just a couple detail shots from Palette Springs in Yellowstone National Park. Thermal events change Mammoth Hot Springs so there is different activity from year to year. Minerva terrace is no longer flowing while others are expanding.
Palette Spring in Yellowstone National Park. The landscape changes and dries as the hot springs evolve. Wish I had more time to explore with softer light.
