Yellowstone Lower Falls

Upper-Falls
Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone Canon 5D II 200mm, f8

One thing I never get enough of when travelling, is the super cool, super huge waterfalls! they are so immense and shake you with their thunderous noise.

The falls of Yellowstone are awesome. There are hundreds scattered around the park. But none as impressive as the lower Yellowstone.

This place has many different viewpoints, all easily accessible  for some great shots. I knew when going here I would end up with the same shot as most people. But it’s what you do with it after that makes it your own. I like to process most landscapes I do in HDR. And most of the time you can get some great results. Especially in the middle of the day. I really wanted to highlight the shadow areas in the canyon. Without blowing out the water from the falls. Sometimes the two ideas never make it in one photo. I’m happy I was able to do it here without much difficulty.

Side note here! This is the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone area. If ever going there I highly recommend camping here. It can get cold if travelling outside the high temps of Summer. But being so close to the falls is pretty amazing.
