[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Mammoth Hot Springs is in the north of Yellowstone Park. It is a limestone area (more precisely travertine) bathed by the hot vocanic waters of the park. Water makes a deposit of calcium carbonate which agglomerates to form basins and slopes. The water circuit is thus diverted continuously. The alternation of humid (with algae) or dry areas and impurities in travertine explain the color differences.

This photo was taken just before a big storm summer. The very dark sky contrasted with the clear rock lighted by the last rays of sun. I was pleasantly surprised to discover this aspect of "painting" in the draw, as it is a paper film.

Hello Philippe! This amazing shot looks as much like a painting as a photograph. Composition is magnificent! Well done!
