I told you to zoom into the picture in my last post.  Well turns out that didn’t work so good.  I’m posting a single picture this time.  It’s twice the size as yesterday’s pictures – so I hope you can see the water drops.  The downside is that it will take longer to load.  It really is pretty cool.  Really it is.

Old Faithful Big

How many times do you watch Old Faithful before you get tired of it?  Never!  So if you don’t mind or even if you do here’s more photos of Old Faithful.  I want to say right off that you need to zoom into these and take a close look as the sun glints off of each droplet of water!   It’s really amazing – right place, right time.  The first five pictures are of the initial eruption which started at 1:07:29 ending at 1:07:38  pm.  Can I just say how much fun meta data is?  I took lots of pictures.  I’ve only shared a few here.  The last picture taken was at 1:08:16.  The eruption was winding down and ended about 1:11:12.  At least that’s when I stopped taking pics.  We had a ranger giving us a presentation about how it all works and cute little Emily (my granddaughter) kept going over and asking questions.  She’s three and I thought it was pretty cute.

This year we took some rookies into the park.  I have fond memories of my Gram and Granddad taking me through the park so I hope my grand kids had a good time as well.  Here’s a few pictures of paint pots and etc.  These pics are all taken at Biscuit Basin we had plans to visit one other basin, but the kids weren’t up to it.  There’s always next year and a good excuse to go back!  I’ll post Old Faithful and some other pics later.  I’m really liking the improvement in the new Photoshop.  Yes these are all post processed.  I shoot all of my pictures without letting the camera process the info at all.  It’s call shooting in RAW.  So I have to do something to them so you can enjoy them, and I hope you do.
