Shapes and shadows in Yellowstone
The Grand Prismatic Spring is the largest hot spring in the United States. The rings of color which the rock, microbes and water create are amazing and I had hoped to be able to photograph them when I visited in late May. The weather had other plans and the cold, wet air created a heavy mist over the scalding hot water. The wind blew in on gusts from the south creating waves of cloud.
Occasionally, the elements would conspire and rifts would open in the sheets of white lifting off of the spring’s surface. I walked around the boardwalk twice, enthralled by the isolation created amid the fluid transitions blowing by.
Such beautiful images, thanks for sharing! 🙂

Thank you Wendy. That steam was really fun to work with. A primal energy swirling around silhouettes.

Thanks, Chris. I’ll be back in Yellowstone again soon. I plan to take many photos with my ‘new and improved’ pocket camera. I’m limited by what I can carry- size and weight-wise, when backpacking… it’s long been a dilemma for me. Keep up the good work!

You are proving my theory that sometimes the best “feeling” photographs come along when we think the weather has conspired against us, but still we shoot. Thanks for sharing these images.
