Grand Geyser - Yellowstone NP
It was hard to decide which picture to post first, as we had seen so many different wonderful things in Yellowstone National Park. Eventually I went for a photo everybody would immediately associate with the park. What you can see on my picture is not Old Faithful - it is even bigger and maybe even more impressive -> Grand Geyser. We were quite lucky to see the eruption because Grand Geyser only erupts about every 10-15 hours (Old Faithful erupts approximately every 90 minutes!). And it was more than worth watching it. The fountain is about 60 meters high (it is the tallest predictable one in the world) and the eruption lasts up to 10 minutes. When we were there, it erupted three times after the other and "grew" higher and higher...something really amazing to see.
For everyone who intents to visit Yellowstone National Park, I can approve watching the eruption of Grand Geyser - you won´t be disappointed !!! :D

I´m glad of any advice or hint that could help me to improve my photography.
