While visiting Yellowstone, I was frequented with bright blue and lifeless skies most of the days. However when we visited Tower Falls a few large puffy white clouds were hanging around. I set up my composition and waited for the sun to get dimmed by a passing cloud creating a nice even light and eliminating any underexposed shadows in the scene. I was going to stick around and try to catch the infamous rainbow that appears in these falls on some mornings when conditions are right, but after the third tour bus full of travelers filed onto the overlook and keeping people from bumping me or my tripod became impossible, we opted to move on to some less popular spots in the park.©2012 JTBaskinphoto ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
