Fumaroles, or steam vents, are hot springs with a lot of heat, but so little water that it all boils away before reaching the surface. Some vents produce a loud hissing sound with the steam and gases.
What dangerous situation...the fire in the forest. I hope that he was quenched quickly...

The clarity and detail and “shading” in this image is wonderful. It also contains terrific contrasts in light and subject where the steam has a dark and heavy background to accentuate its light and billowy form. The ground also has a lot of interest and detail – so well done Don!

Cool, where was this taken? Theres been a documentary on Yellowstone broadcast recently over her, I was mesmerised both as a geologist and as an apsiring photographer!

Stunning stuff. All that heat just below us.

This must be another of your medium format negatives. Fantastic tones and subject. I love this king of images. Can you tell me what type of scanner do you use ? I'm really interested in scanning old negatives ?

Interesting capture, Don. It's putting on a better show than Old Faithful did when I visited at the age of 10:-)

I like the quality of the b&w image - a lot of details at the dark trees and at the smoke - the scenery is very well framed and captured

excellent detail and fine composition capturing this. Great detail in the trees & soil so I'm going out on a limb to say I think this is another of your scanned film/slide images. I spent half a day at Yellowstone and was in awe the entire time.
