Witches' Brew by Ian-Plant Witches' Brew by Ian-Plant
"Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble."
-Macbeth

Excelsior Geyser in Yellowstone National Park. I used a stack of neutral density filters to lengthen my exposures to capture the motion of the wind-blown steam rising from this remarkable boiling spring.

Nice shot. You should load this into Photoshop, and then you could make it look like witches' brew.

thanks! If the sun were out I might have lost some of the blue color in the hot spring pool - also I like the moodiness created by the cloud cover - but then again, since the sun didn't come out that day, I will never know! Actually, I was back there the next day when the sun was out, but the wind had died down and the steam rising from the pool wasn't doing anything interesting. You gotta make the most of what is available, I guess!

Since you managed to use the words "epic", "insane", "superb", "kudos", and "dude" in all the same comment, that's worth a significant discount on the price of a print!
