Anytime I feel lost, I pull out a map and stare. I stare until I have reminded myself that life is a giant adventure, so much to do, to see. (Angelina Jolie) 🌏🌍🌎 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

One of Yellowstone's main attractions is its impressive geysers. In fact, the national park has about half of the world's geysers! In 2011 a study found 1,283 of these features in the park, 465 of which are active in any given year. I guess you could say these geyser everywhere! 😜

White Pocket, Az. This is a highly eroded and sculpted landscape in Northern Arizona. There are dramatic bands of different colored rock creating layers and swirls within the areas of erosion. The primary colors are variations of red, yellow, and white. The surface is rippled in many areas, and I tried using Low Level Lighting to accent the textured surface. Accenting the surface actually took away from the bands of color, and I finally decided that the colors were more important, and captured the foreground with a long exposure of 3 minutes, and the sky with a 20 second exposure. This creates a flatter image, but captures the colors well. The 2 were blended in PS.
White Pocket is a pretty long drive in a 4WD vehicle, about 2.5 hours one way from Kanab. I went there to scout it in May, then went back in August and it was cloudy. Went back again 4 nights later and it was intermittently cloudy (this night). So I have 15 hours of driving invested to get this shot, lol. There are more shots to still get, so I guess there will be more driving next year!
