Opal Pool

The Opal Pool is currently dormant, not being fed by heated underground springs, so the pool did not have a steady stream of vapor hiding it’s colors allowing me to capture the lovely blue along with the reflections of some distant clouds.  Yellowstone experiences on the order of 1000 earthquakes a year, most which are underground and not felt by people walking the surface. These earthquakes regularly shift the underlying strata resulting in geysers and pools becoming active, dormant, or adjusting their cycles.
