One of my favorite places to go to in the Winter time is Yellowstone. The calm peacefulness that exists when going through the park is amazing and yet at the same time the amount of life that is busily making it’s way through the snow is ceaseless. The geothermal properties of the park often make lots of steam arise from the many rivers that inhabit the park, like the Madison River.
At sunrise on cold days the change in temperature from the water and the air makes for some really steamy conditions and when the morning light hits the steam, the photographic possibilities are endless.
The clam cool morning seems like any other with the light hitting the peak but as the sun slowly gets higher and higher the steam comes up and the magic is born.
