The rising sun illuminates clouds and steam in the Old Faithful Geyser Basin. I love shooting pictures of Geyser Hill, and Old Faithful, from this angle. This spot is one of my favorites and it is only a ten minute walk from the main visitor center.
Photography tip: Use reflective surfaces, like the river, to add more color to your sunrise and sunset images. We are often blessed with fantastic colors in the sky at dawn but at this time of day our foregrounds are often dark and drab. Whenever possible, I try to compose my sunrise shots around something reflective so that I get some color on both sides of the frame.
Our upcoming Yellowstone in Winter Photography Workshop is full but we are drawing up plans for a fall photography program. The world's first National Park is a winner in all seasons. More details on the blog soon.
