Grand Prismatic Runoff

The Grand Prismatic Spring was one of my favorite geological sites in Yellowstone National Park. I photographed this runoff at the entrance to the area. The colors in the runoff mirrored the colors that I saw in the spring. It was by far the most colorful and spectacular feature in the entire park. I highly recommend you visit this area when in the park. I also recommend that you go when the temperatures are warmer. This will allow you to see the vivid colors that the spring has to offer without the steam created by the cooler temperatures contrasting with the water.

This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 35 mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/22, shutter speed at 1/4th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability. This is a single image processed in Lightroom then finalized in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
