Black Pool
An abstract look at the Black Pool at the West Thumb Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

Of all the grand sights at Yellowstone National Park, one of my favorite photographs from there has turned out to be this close-up, abstract shot of Black Pool in the West Thumb Geyser Basin. As you can see, the pool is now blue, not black. A temperature change in 1991 killed off the bacteria that gave the pool is darker hue, and now it’s a brilliant azure. This brings out great textures in the water.
