Picture of the Moment - Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park

Sometimes circumstances make all the difference. I took this picture the day after I captured Echinus Geyser in similar conditions. It's amazing what a point-and-click camera can do when you luck into good lighting. Until it erupts again and wipes out human civilization, Yellowstone is a fantastic place. After that it won't be so popular.
