The light play in this photo is just beautiful! Looks like a truly gorgeous place. Thanks for sharing
It looks like it was afternoon because the sunlight comes from the west.
This is a fine photo.
More of the magic, Rich!
Greetings Marilyn, Ralph, Mira and Palmina, Thanks for visiting the West Thumb Geyser Basin and commenting. We were stopped for refueling and it was late afternoon. It would be dark before we got back to the Snow Lodge at Old Faithful. We were returning from the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Right next to the warming hut was a huge pine tree. Just to the south of that tree were two more and those are the sources of the long shadows. Beyond the ghost trees and pools was Yellowstone Lake. It was a very beautiful setting. It was also very cold, but that was OK. We walked down to the pools to look into the deep blue waters. A fantastic end to a great day of sight seeing.
Great series on that great, great park, Rich. This one is extra special. Well done.
Greetings Hank, Thanks for visiting. I have been to Yellowstone many times, but never in winter. Winter is the best time to go to this park, discussion over. This place is just amazing. I have never seen so much snow in January, anywhere. The steam in the air makes it look prehistoric. What a wonderful place.
That's a lovely photo with beautiful lighting, Rich! Yellowstone is really fascinating - I have been there only once but I'll never forget it. Cheers, Anne
Greetings Anne, I am glad you have gotten to see the park at least once. It is a wonderful place. But winter time - it is magic. There is more snow than I have seen in a long time. The lighting and the steam make for endless photo opportunities.
Greetings Hamzars, Long shadows with steam and frost in the trees. It was very beautiful. I am glad you like it.
Greetings From Iran
