From my trip to Yellowstone National Park last month. The primary photo goal on this day was, as usual, wildlife however the day just didn’t offer many worthwhile subjects so the landscape instead became the focus.
Having been to the park many times, we bypassed the more popular and crowded spots and sought out less visited locations. One of them was the Lower Geyser Basin where we were lucky enough to time our visit with two different eruptions, including this one.
This particular geyser erupts a couple of times a day with some of those events lasting more than an hour. It has been known to shoot water 200 feet in the air but that is a rarity with typical heights of less than 100 feet being seen (like this one).
I loved the dramatic blue skies punctuated by just enough clouds to add interest.
