16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Grand Prismatic Spring Vista

A return visit allowed me to hike the Fairy Falls trail to capture this natural wonder from the overlook, and to take in the immense size of the Grand Prismatic Spring.! I had photographed this spring from ground level a few days earlier, but it is not until you are looking down at it that you get the true sense on how amazing this spectacle is. The light was perfect, and the sky offered enough drama to compliment this beautiful geothermal feature.
