Picturesque

I’ve been trying out a new, quick photo editing program on the iPad, Snapseed.   It’s a real time saver, compared to my usual method of editing images in Lightroom.  It’s easy to get carried away with special effects, though, with these landscapes from the geyser basin at Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park.

Crowds turn out for Old Faithful’s eruption about every 90 minutes.

At peak eruption, Old Faithful shoots steam and water about 100 feet into the air.

I don’t know how often bison fall through the thin crust of the geyser basin, but they must enjoy the warm steam baths.
