16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Brutal Nature at Yellowstone

The volcanic activities at Yellowstone were destructive. The live and death of lives in the past are recorded in the landscape. The photo shows exactly that. The dead tree trunk and branches lying in the hot spring water swamp, the reflection of the surrounding environment and brown orange colored water, all in the golden hour sunlight, form the image of the brutal nature of Yellowstone.
