heaven and hell

The photographer: “This is one of my all time favorites, the first photo I took that blew me away, opened my eyes to the possibilities before me.

Taken in February of last year in Yellowstone National Park. The scene was even more surreal than a still photo can do justice, with steam rolling over the rise, creating backlit shifting patterns and shrouding the trees from view completely. Then for a moment, just a tiny moment, it would clear and the scene would split in half - all color and light and pristine snow on one side and twisted, tortured trees & steaming algae covered rock on the other.

I was a newbie to my 10D, and SLR photography in general, and had goofy settings - 800 ISO among other ridiculousness - which makes this shot one I would desperately desire to “redo” although I doubt I could recreate this if I tried. I will say this: if you ever get the opportunity to visit Yellowstone in the winter, for the love of Pete take that opportunity and run with it. Algae & Ice was taken the same morning…

The photographer: “I could get drunk on these. Bagan is a fairytale from above, and sometimes painfully real down below.”
