Mystical shots from the treasure trove (Yellowstone)

Brrrr…it’s starting to get cold! But we will be warmer for Thanksgiving not only from eating too much hot food but also from being in San Diego. I hope to get out Friday morning for a photo shoot in La Jolla before my critique group meeting.

My writing pace has fallen off and my NaNo goal of 100,000 words is history. Even getting to 50,000 is highly at risk. But it’s not over ’til it’s over, you know?

I have been organizing my photos, getting them off my computer because my disk space is maxing out. In the process I have been feeling for what of past photos most excites me today. Well the answer for today, November 23 2015, is Yellowstone.

The mystical quality of Yellowstone National Park still amazes me. I have some shots I developed before and some ones I developed today.

This first batch is from my earlier work.

The softness in the colors and mist belies the volcanic action creating those effects!

Here is the batch I developed today using Lightroom to emphasize the mysterious quality of Yellowstone.

This week I am looking forward to seeing friends and family and taking photos in La Jolla. What are you looking forward to this week?
