"Impressions of Yellowstone" Gallery
Impressions of YellowstoneI've launched a new featured gallery on my website called Impressions of Yellowstone. Yellowstone National Park's many geothermal features are a delight to millions of visitors every year. Yellowstone essentially sits over an ancient volcanic "hot spot" where magma from deep within the earth rises towards the surface, heating water along the way.
The gallery is a collection of images I have taken over the years of Yellowstone's many geysers, hot springs, and thermal pools. Included in the collection are images of Mammoth Hot Springs, Old Faithful, Midaway Geyser Basin, West Thumb Geyser Basin, as well as images from other geothermal areas in the park.
