Black and white

While on her honeymoon, Your Shot community member and photographer Ani Gypps captured this image of the Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone’s colorful and largest hot spring. But the black-and-white treatment she gave this photo seems to have been the best way to evoke the mood she was looking for. “We arrived late in the day,” she writes, “and the usual beautiful colors were not as visible within that light. But before leaving anywhere I always like to look back at the scene. That’s when I saw the light beautifully hitting the rising steam and highlighting the textures and patterns of the bacterial mats. This was the image I had to take.”
