I took this photo in June 2012 within Yellowstone National Park, in Wyoming, United States

I took this photo in June 2012 within Yellowstone National Park, in Wyoming, United States. It shows the lower falls of the Yellowstone River seen from Artist’s point. It’s a spectacular natural phenomen that at around 10 am in the morning the sun creates a colorfol rainbow in the cloud of mist at the bottom of the falls. No surprise thus, that at that time of the day many photographers meet with their tripods at Artist’s point. The lower falls is 308 feet (94 m) high.

© Giuseppe Lupo 2012. Story behind the foto: It was early June 2012 when I visited first time Yellowstone N.P. I had read about this spectacle at the LeHardys Rapids.

So I was not really sure I will be lucky. I was on my tour in the southern part of YSNP and had planed a short stop at the LeHardys Rapids to look for …
