Goodbye Isaac on Flickr.I was driving home watching the tops blow off into creamy streams. By the time I got home and walked to my favorite perch the sun was streaming in a band instead of lighting the whole cloud. I took over 102 frames as the light band illuminated new areas and caused new colors and definition. This was my favorite because of the halos of light near the top and front.

Black Diamond and Opal Pools on Flickr.


Biscuit Basin, Yellowstone National Park, WY
Used a dual technique here to bring out the steam rising from the pools as well as the detail in the landscape. Initially I saw the thin wisps of steam on the pool and wanted to capture it. I stacked a 0.9 ND filter and CPL to get 5 stops and shot some slow shutter exposures. At the same time I bracketed the shots just to experiment with HDR. The combination of the two techniques created this surreal almost other worldly look at the Black Diamond and Opal Pools in Yellowstone.
