Yellowstone Falls

Lower Falls of The Grand Canyon Of Yellowstone

One of the beautiful sights in Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. This is the lower falls. Lower Yellowstone Falls is the largest volume waterfall in the Rocky Mountains of the United States. These falls are 308 feet (94 m) high, or nearly twice as high as Niagara Falls. To give you a sense of scale, in the bottom left corner of this shot is a small viewing area with a person standing there. On the right-hand side of the brink of the falls is another viewing area with about 20 or so people viewing the falls.

Grand Entrance

Another view inside the ornate Pennsylvania State Capitol Building in Harrisburg PA. This was a tricky shot as there were over 100 people crammed into the floor of the rotunda when we arrived. There were news crews filming what seemed to be an awards ceremony for Emergency responders in the area. There were chairs set up, microphones on stands and people elbowing me from both sides, reporters everywhere. So I made the best of a crowded situation and pointed my camera up at such an angle I could get the staircase and the dome in one shot and totally keep all the people out of the frame, I took a few snaps hoping one would be elbow nudge free.
