Through a friend of a friend of a friend and to the unavailability of a couple more friends... whew... I was able to go shoot Fly Geyser not long ago. It's one of those geysers that has been on my list for years now, so literally the moment I was given the chance I packed up and drove 11 hours the next day (while stopping for sunset at Mono Lake) to get there.
What a unique and cool land this geyser is in. It's almost like a miniature Yellowstone it has so much thermal activity going on all over that area. I got to this with a friend of mine in the afternoon, and we were allowed to stay and shoot for as long as we wanted, which in this case ended up being until about 1:30am.
My friend wanted to play with light painting some of the geyser pools as seen in a shot here. I will offer both versions, with some of the pools light up and the other shot with just natural light. A quarter moon was up and to our back to provide some lighting, though we also used a dimmed headlamp to shed some light on the main part of the geyser.
I have been a bit up in the air about how much I liked the green colored pools, but I will admit the colored pools version has been growing on me the more I look at it. I am interested to hear what others think though.
