Prismatic Steam in Yellowstone

The Geothermal Genie on Boing Boing

Xeni Jardin and Cory Doctorow at Boing Boing have always been supportive of the site here and are big proponents of Creative Commons. I’m speaking about this subject and more at in Dallas in a few months, in fact.

Xeni recently ran a story about Iceland being a safe haven for new media, and they used this photo of the genie below.


Daily Photo – Prismatic Steam in Yellowstone

The photo above reminded me very much of this one below, which I had yet to release. This is the beautiful grand prismatic spring, which you have probably seen featured here before. This is the same scene from ground level.

Getting to this exact spot is not easy. There is about a one-mile hike to get to this area. The little trail is surrounded by trees, and there is no way to get a clear shot through the trees. So I had to bushwack to get through and then stand on fallen trees that jut out into this broiling lake.

    That broiling lake is also not just benign water! Hope you kept your toes safely above it. It is pretty acidic! Gorgeous work, as always. I always lose my breath at Yellowstone, it simply steals it away.

    Both photos are breathtaking, indeed, Trey. We hope to get to Yellowstone this summer as my friend from school and her hubby are working in one of the campgrounds. She’s counting on us coming as we haven’t seen each other since 1963!!! Thanks for sharing your photos, great job as always!!!!!
