Half of the world’s geothermal features are in Yellowstone National Park. It is centered over the Yellowstone Caldera, the largest supervolcano on the continent and it is still considered active with lava flows and rocks from eruptions covering most of the land in the park.
Photographing these steaming calderas, the hot springs and terraces is a fascinating experience and one that is met with great caution considering the flowing waters and spouting geysers reach a temperature of 204 degrees! The natural colors of the mineral deposits and clear thermal waters are some of nature’s finest subjects.
