BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Yellowstones SERIOUS STEAM
Yellowstones SERIOUS STEAM
This is the Excelsior Geyser Crater in YSNP This shot was taken the end of Sept 2011 a couple of hours after sunrise. Temps were down below freezing over night . So you can just Imagine how much more impressive this must be in the FRIGID WINTER MONTHS. This is Located in the same group of Geysers as the Grand Prismatic Spring Between Old Faithful and the Madison Junction of the Park Drive.
If YOU HAVE NOT GONE MAKE SOME PLANS TO VISIT IN THE NEAR FUTURE Yellowstone is EVERYTHING ADVERTISED X TEN.

Jack...I have an idea: Why don't you and Greg lead groups of photographers to Yellowstone. I think it's a GRAND idea!

And this is a phenomenal photograph.

Wow - spectacular! We've made it out west to Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Zion, but this is still on the list - maybe the best for last!

Hey Jack congratulations on your finalist photo, it should have been GOLD. I just got back from Maine and saw all the finalist, I truly believe this will be my last year as I'm tired of wasting my time to keep seeing the same old results month after month.
