Old Faithful at peak of blow. We waited nearly two hours for its cyclic eruption. It is a magnificent phenomenon to observe. Although a violent physical occurrence, Old Faithful gives peace to the immediate area by periodic release of tremendous pressure.

Thanks for visiting my gallery....I was very busy in the last weeks and I went in a short holiday visiting the Black See shore and the Carpathian Mountains....The images you post are superb. This is a nice photo with a magnificent phenomenon found in Yellowstone National Park. Perfect details as usual and excellent focus.

Hello Michael,
We saw a few of these geyser last weeks in Iceland. The surroundings were totally different, vulcanic in red, yellow and black and they blow every two minutes.
Very nice photo in good sharpness, beautiful colours and a fine composition.

Hello Michael,
Wonderful capture,remarkable clarity and a good composition.

Hi Michael,

The wideness of the area is giving depth to the composition. You have captured well the power of Old Faithful in action. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
