Sapphire Sunset

Yellowstone National Park

Limited Edition of 50 Museum Grade, Fine Art Prints.

I had scouted this location at Biscuit Basin earlier in the day and decided I wanted to return at sunset and do a panoramic. This spot in Biscuit Basin is the Sapphire Pool. I just loved the blue water and knowing I would be looking northwest I hoped the sky would cooperate. I arrived about an hour early and setup and began my wait. The biggest problem I noticed was as others walked on the boardwalk the vibrations would affect my exposures, so I knew I would have to time it perfectly when no one was walking by. I new I wanted a panoramic photograph that would capture the sweeping grandeur of the pool so I composed the image by turning the camera vertical and shooting 10-15 vertical images that would later be stitched together in Photoshop and cropped into this 1:3 ratio panoramic. Luckily by the time the sunset light started to shine most people had left and there was very little foot traffic. I love how this photograph turned out! I'm glad the sky didn't explode in too much color because it would have detracted from the blue pool, but there was just enough pink in the sky to add some extra drama and reflect in the water. Yellowstone is an amazing place to photograph and this one turned out to be one of my favorites from the trip.
