A movie set in the Mojave Desert, California.
During our second day in Yellowstone, we drove from Lewis Lake up to Mammoth Hot Springs, making one large 250 mile loop through the park. We stopped at the Mud Volcano, Upper/Lower Falls, Hayden Valley, Mammoth Hot Springs and Old Faithful among a few others and even made it back to our campsite at Lewis Lake in time for dinner.
We drove past this spot and I hollered for my Dad to turn the car around and go back so I could capture the steam glowing in the early morning light. Shooting directly into the sun gave this image a natural monochromatic feel.

To me, these types of images are really fun to create. This space was pitch dark, so to get this shot, I set up an LED panel at the camera, shining towards the blast doors to get a composition. Once the framing was set, I took a LED panel and placed it beneath the walkway on the right. I also placed a panel behind the ajar door. Lastly, during the exposure, I light painted the circular section of the tunnel, near the camera, with a flashlight.

I took two steps and felt like I had been submerged into a living painting.
My dry skin danced while being steamed by the heat of the spring beneath the dry summer sun.
My eyes began to flutter one hundred miles an hour, faster than my heart could keep up.
I had waited years to see this and it was more grand than I ever imagined…
