Cold Smoke at Tangled Creek

I was visiting Yellowstone on a photo tour and we came across this scene. It was about -15degF which created the fog that the locals call “Cold Smoke”. Since I was shooting into the sun, I used exposure bracketing and combined the images in Photoshop. The fog only lasted about 20 minutes. It was a magical scene.

Magical indeed, Tom! Something of a dreamlike atmosphere. I love the composition, that amazing glow - everything about it! Very well done.

Chris stole my comment but yeah that is a magical photo

So moody and peaceful. Well done!

Lovely photo, Tom. Mystical and moving.

Congrats on POTD, Tom! Well deserved.

More a poem than a photograph…resembles a minimalistic Japanese ink drawing done by light

Wonderful tones and composition. An outstanding image. Bravo!

Great shot, you can almost feel the cold..

Perfect photo

Wonderful image Tom.
