After a gray morning, the clouds lifted and sun started to come out. That’s not the best light for photographs, but I still go out and shoot, especially when on vacation. Better to get a not perfect shot, than not one at all.
When we were in Yellowstone a number of years ago, the skies were a perfect brilliant blue, and the colors in the pools somewhat muted by the harsh light. This trip was the reverse – interesting skies, lots of clouds, and great light that shows the unearthly colors in the landscape.
After being locked down for a couple of years, not really traveling, it was really nice to just get out and walk…and see that the world is still there! West Geyser is a small feature, sort of a first step on the road back.
