This new release is one from our Summer trip. It’s one of about 6 new images I’ll be releasing this year and one of it’s my favorite spots in Yellowstone where the geyser always flows and the color is amazing. This one is going to look great in the gallery and does justice to this beautiful place. The master original will be around 60 inches.
How it was made:
I waited for the light and was able to capture the sun filtered from behind the geysers flow in a slow 10 second exposure for a stunning single frame image that posses stunning dynamic range. I used the MK2 for this image at ISO 160. Post production had to be careful to maintain the full range of color and light and keep banding out of the subtle gradients. I took my time at every step.
This was our camp spot up on Smith Mesa and my view was a few yards from my trailer. It’s one of my favorite places, overlooking the entire Zion Valley. I come here every year or so to relax and get images that due it justice. This year I took home two, this one, and a spectacular panorama that we’ve not finished yet. I’m ecstatic since this not an easy area to get the right conditions in. This is a unique combination of sunset light and visible stars. It’s the real thing, exposed for around 30 minutes just after sunset.
