These photos are from my two visits to Old Faithful to watch the famous geyser erupt on its reliable schedule. I took shots at various stages of eruption and the final one has a nice rainbow alongside the geyser plume. The birds in some of the photos were actually very large, which helps put the size of the eruption in perspective.

Large crowd gathering for the eruption.
The eruption grows…
Probably wouldn’t want to be standing under that shower of steam.
Steaming water, no big deal for this guy.
Keeping in mind that these are very large birds helps provide a sense of scale to the size of the eruption.
Looks like a steaming tea kettle.
Old Faithful and a rainbow towering over the crowd in the distance.
Greetings readers, and long time no see. It’s been ages since I’ve posted, in part because I got super busy at work, but also because I spent several months culling and processing all of the photos I took during my two-week trip out west this past summer. Hopefully now that I’m mostly caught up, I’ll be able to start posting more often and maybe get back to updating my trip journal again.
In the meantime, here’s a photo taken during my stay in Yellowstone National Park of Old Faithful erupting and producing a pretty rainbow in the process.
