Yellowstone Lake, Wyoming

During our second day in Yellowstone, we drove from Lewis Lake up to Mammoth Hot Springs, making one large 250 mile loop through the park. We stopped at the Mud Volcano, Upper/Lower Falls, Hayden Valley, Mammoth Hot Springs and Old Faithful among a few others and even made it back to our campsite at Lewis Lake in time for dinner.

We drove past this spot and I hollered for my Dad to turn the car around and go back so I could capture the steam glowing in the early morning light. Shooting directly into the sun gave this image a natural monochromatic feel.
