Yellowstone - Grand Prismatic Spring

I had always been in an awe with Grand Prismatic Spring pictures on the net, and wanted to capture the same using my lenses.

We started out really early in the morning to avoid the crowd on the long July weekend, but believe me morning is not the time to shoot a spring. It had rained a little previous night and low morning temperatures leading to a lot of steam engulfed the entire spring, colors were not very visible even from a close distance. We planned to come back by noon, and headed to Old faithful for the day.

The shot is taken from a nearby hill, after a short but steep climb on the trail to Mystic falls. The day was little cloudy with almost no direct sunlight, but the Grand Prismatic colors stood out brighter than ever.
