This last weekend we took a long road trip with a friend down from Bozeman, through Jackson Hole, Wyoming and then back up through the Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. My goal was to get more than the clichÃ© animal-from-the-car photos — which I took a number of anyway because really, how often do you see a Grizzly Bear with her cubs or a Big Horn Sheep?
We spent the night near Old Faithful Inn and pulled up in time to catch an eruption of the Old Faithful geyser just after sunset. I setup a tripod and experimented with a variety of exposure times before the geyser blew catching the rising puffs of steam in a variety of intervals between 1/30th of a second and 30 seconds.
This photo is a 6 second exposure towards the end of the eruption. Because of the length of the exposures I only got a few photos of the actual geyser eruption but have a whole collection of pictures of the process before and after.
