Heaven & Earth Erupt

Author: Guest Writer/Wednesday, October 17, 2012/Categories: Uncategorized

In documentary photography, the mantra is always ‘opportunity, opportunity, opportunity’. A case in point is an image of the western sky colored by iridescent auroras and the eruption of a geyser in Yellowstone National Park. The night time shooter saw a mosaic in his field of view with White Dome Geyser erupting in the foreground. With green auroras appearing on the horizon, brilliant bands of red auroras shimmering overhead, a bright moon illuminating the foreground, an image of heaven and earth was captured.

While the solar storms that power the brilliant auroras i has ended, White Dome Geyser still erupts every 30 minutes.
