The White Dome Geyser is located in the Lower Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park, about 200 yards down the road from the Great Fountain Geyser that I wrote about earlier this week. We stopped here while traveling through Firehole Lake Drive on our way to see the many geysers in the area.
The 12-foot-high geyserite cone of the White Dome Geyser is one of the largest in the park. Its eruptions are unpredictable but generally occur within intervals ranging from 15 minutes to 3 hours and last around 2-3 minutes reaching heights of 30 feet. Although less powerful than its nearby Great Fountain Geyser, the White Dome Geyser was used as an emblem by the old Yellowstone Library and Museum Association.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 16 mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/16, shutter speed at 1/20th of a second and the ISO set at 100. This is a single image processed in Lightroom then completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
