We ran across this wonderful scene of American Bison on the range along highway 191 on our way to photograph the Grand Prismatic Spring. What caught our eye was the ever-changing light showcasing the hot springs behind the Bison. I waited until the light hit the steam coming off of one of the many features in the Midway Geyser Basin before I snapped this photograph.
Midway Geyser Basin contains a small collection of mammoth-sized springs. Midway is part of the Lower Geyser Basin, but because of its isolated location between the main features of Lower and Upper geyser basins it became known as Midway.
This image was captured with my Canon EOS 7D Mark II using my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 II Lens set on 142mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/5.6, shutter speed at 1/800th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I hand-held the camera for this photograph. This is a single image processed in Lightroom.
