Yellowstone West Thumb hot-pool

At the south-west end of Yellowstone Lake you will find the West Thumb Geyser Basin. This touristy spot has some great hot-pools that you can photograph without people walking in the background. [24mm, 1/200s, F8]

Despite all those great colors, it also nice to create a black & white photo. This picture obviously started as a color shot but I thought it would suit black & white. [24mm, 1/400s, F8]
