The temperature is finally starting to drop. This week we might actually be back in the below freezing temps at night here in the valley. This past weekend was the closing day of the interior of Yellowstone. Soon the snow coaches and snowmobiles will be bringing people into the park to see the splendor of Yellowstone in winter. This time of the year is one of my favorites because it brings about a change that I love to photograph, the great steam coming off of the geothermal rivers.
I am in no way a morning person but the truly the best time to photograph the steam is in the morning. It is in the morning when the temps start to rise after a below freezing morning that the river really starts to talk. In the glow of the morning sun you’d swear you weren’t on this earth anymore. I shot this with the D3 and 24-70 AF-S, nothing tricky just a simple click of gods splendor.
