19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Old Faithful

Old Faithful is a natural geyser located in Yellowstone National Park that erupts every 30 minutes to 2hrs, hence the name Old Faithful! I took this picture during 2020 trip in the middle of pandemic. While I was using my Nikon D810 (bulky and heavy) DSLR, people mostly were capturing the eruption in their mobile phones as can be seen in the picture. It's not about how you capture the moment, but all about being there and witnessing this amazing phenomenon. One of the thing that I tried to capture besides the eruption is to show how people are engaged with it.
