White Dome has the unfortunate circumstance of living in the shadow of Great Fountain Geyser. Great Fountain is a truly impressive geyser and draws crowds any time it looks as though it might erupt, especially near sunset. Just down the road, a very short distance, is White Dome. Its eruptions are not quite so impressive, but considerably more frequent.
This past season I decided to pay a little more attention to the little cousin, the Maple Fire in the distance giving occasional accent to the skies behind it.
She is full of moods and as dramatic as any sky above her.
And even lends her charms to the night sky.
She is fashionable, and can match any color
She knows when to be silent and allow the sky to be the main attraction.
or to simply allow it to adorn her….
Towards those who finally take note of her, her beauty will slay…
Reblogged this on O LADO ESCURO DA LUA.
These are beautiful photographs, Russ. You have accomplished your mission by making me want to visit and see her in person. Thanks.
Thanks Pat, if it prompts visiting in person, wonderful, and for those who can’t make the trip I figure it does the soul good just knowing such wilderness is out there.

Awesome collection, Russ!
