Thermal Pools in a Winter Forest
The thermal pools of Yosemite are astonishing pieces of nature, particularly on a cold, early-winters' day. The steam given off from the scalding water is thicker than usual to create a dramatic landscape. The contrast between the snowy trees in the backdrop and the boiling water in the foreground provided a special scene.
