Great Fountain Geyser

The Shot

This sunset shot of Yellowstone National Park‘s Great Fountain Geyser was taken one September evening around 6:30 PM using a Nikon D50 with a 12.0-24.0mm f/4.0 lens mounted on a Manfrotto tripod. The exposure was 1/50 with an -1.33 offset at an ISO of 200.

The Spot

Great Fountain Geyser is located off Firehole Lake Drive about 10 miles south of the junction of the West Entrance Road and the Grand Loop Road. Firehole Lake Drive is a small loop road that connects with the Grand Loop Road. There is a large parking area and bench seats for watching the geyser erupt. This is another of the spots popular with photographers.
