Fantastic abstract image. I love the contrasting colours and the different textures. The different layers draw the eye from the bottom of the image to the top. Love it.

Behind The Lens

Location
Image was captured inside Yellowstone National Park in May 2011. Along the West Thumb Geyser Basin walkway. Noticed the striking colors and got down on my hands and knees to get this close-up shot.
Time
I believe this was later in the afternoon, on a very cold spring day. Snow was still about 20 feet high coming in through the south entrance to the park. It was just before the big summer rush of visitors.
Lighting
The sun was hitting the top of the pool at a deep angle & there was some cloud cover. The brisk air had a heavy haze and the steam from the pools added even more of a fog.
Equipment
Camera: Sony A330; Lens: Sony kit 18-55mm; No filter, handheld, on my knees
Inspiration
Of course, the colors are what Yellowstone is known for and I just wanted to capture that color. I wanted the perspective of the thermal pool to be a little different, give it a little mystery as to what you were looking at.
Editing
I did enhance the color to bring out the contrast and completed it with a slight HDR effect.
In my camera bag
Then: Sony A330, Sony kit 18-55mm, & Sony kit 75-300mm; Now: Sony A77, Sony A580, Sigma 150-500mm, Sigma 18-250mm, & Sony kit 18-55mm, assorted filters, tripod.
Feedback
Make yourself take photos at a different perspective, a different view of the environment. Sometimes you get nothing, but sometimes the results can be pretty incredible.
