Colours of Yellowstone National Park

Ahh, Yellowstone, one of the tourist capitals of the world. My parents have a cabin nearby and so I have been there numerous times. As it is a tourist hot-zone, I typically try to avoid taking my camera, but I got suckered in one time and happened to have some slide film in there. I snapped a few and realized why people take their cameras and decided that I will always have one with me on future visits.

The colors of that place are fantastic! Next time I will certainly cross-process the slide film and can imagine that the colors will be even better. Color is everywhere, in the water especially. Something about the Earths core heating this water directly puts all sorts of minerals and things in it that are really something special. Algae and such create bright oranges and reds, minerals form crystals that are white as can be, and the water itself is clear and clean, making the view to the bottom splendid. I certainly learned my lesson to take my camera everywhere, even with the Mecca of tourists all pointing and shooting.

    You should be a photographer for NRDC, you might persuade people to save beautiful places like this!
