Winter Quiet

Winter Quiet

In January, 2012, I visited Yellowstone for 7 days of frigid and glorious winter photography. I went with a small group, traveling about on one of the big snow coaches as we explored the winter landscape. Even in the sub zero weather, the geysers breathe life into the otherwise frozen landscape. Here, at the Norris Geyser Basin, I was struck by the subtle hint of color in the thermal pool and the constantly changing mist in the distance. It is a dynamic environment. I snapped many images with my Nikon d90. In most of my exposures, the trees in the foreground were completely obscured by the mist. In this image, my favorite of the series, you catch just a hint of the mist in the background.
