Giantess Geyser erupting
Photographer: Fred Wasmer
Location: Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
I was lucky enough to witness an eruption of Giantess Geyser while visiting Yellowstone National Park last winter. At one point in the eruption, the mid-morning light was illuminating the geyser fountain and steam, but not the distant trees and clouds, resulting in strong contrast between the eruption and the background. A brisk west wind was blowing the steam away fast enough to keep the fountain from becoming obscured.
