This photo was taken at the edge of Excelsior Geyser Crater. Excelsior is a hot spring in the Midway Geyser Basin located in Yellowstone National Park in the United States of America. The Excelsior Geyser pool discharges nearly 5000 gallons of 199 °F water per minute directly into the Firehole River.

Born and raised in the logging town of Snoqualmie, Washington (the logging days in Snoqualmie are mostly in the past now). I currently reside in Issaquah, Washington. My Canon Rebel 450D was a Christmas gift that has kept on giving me hours and hours of pleasure. I recently aquired a Canon 5D Mark II and I am now learning to use this awesome instument. I hope you enjoy these pictures half as much as I enjoyed capturing them!
