Grand Canyon Of Yellowstone

    Newer Older

    Well, here it is. I had to shoot this. It's the Lower Falls, in Yellowstone's Grand Canyon. Here is where Yellowstone gets it's name. Notice how yellow the rock is. Primarily from all the Sulphur from the volcanic activity. This was my first shot I took when arriving in Yellowstone. I love the hazy quality, and the depth it creates. It was not actually hazy when I shot this. It was snowing. It's amazing how you can't get away from the volcanic activity in Yellowstone. From this beautiful overlook, if you look straight down towards the river, there is steam gushing out of the canyon walls.

      I've talked to so many people who have said "what Grand Canyon in Yellowstone?" it's actually 328 steps down, therefore ~328 steps back up; I failed to read the damn sign and thought the outlook was just around the bend.... then I could hear the falls rushing and couldn't turn back; It took a LONG time to walk back up, stopping at each landing and bench to suck in air... but well worth it

      excellent, the mist creates a dramatic effect, and the layers behind the falls look awesome...great work!
