Fire Lake in Yellowstone

    Newer Older

    Before I get started, I finally had a chance to comment (#184!) on the "The Moments Between" post from a few days ago. I'm very happy people are actively guessing and experimenting to do the same thing! I think that's very healthy and much better than just getting an answer... although I will expose all in the future.

    It reminds me of last night. I was in San Francisco with a bunch of very nice people from Peachpit, the company that is publishing the upcoming book. After Indian food, we all went out to walk the streets of San Francisco so I could give them a few tips on HDR shooting. One of the gals, holding her D60 without a tripod, was asking me about "What happens if I set the ISO down to 100?" I said. "Hmm... I wonder what would happen... Why don't you try?" (of course I knew the answer)... but better that she finds out herself. (she did).

    This photo below is from Fire Lake. Yes, I dipped my hand in. I had to! I could not resist. It was really hot. Oh god was it hot. I had to do it twice just because I couldn't believe how hot it was the first time.

      Well done, most inviting.

      It is a universal urge to dip a hand or toe into the lovely lakes and ponds we see in our travels. Most of the ones in our area are usually ice-cold.

      Very nice. I like the different colours of the hot water flows at Yellowstone, induced by the bacteria.
