These photos may fit in other categories, but sometimes I like to zoom in/bring out little details that are difficult to capture at wider angles.

Terraced Hot Springs and Mud Pots at Yellowstone:

And a tiny frog that kept me up one night while it sang outside my bedroom window:

Great idea for a thread. Nothing is more enjoyable than finding an interesting composition buried in the grandeur.

if you ever wanted to know what fresh lava is made of:
thousands of little silica glass particles, it's really amazing.





The lava toe was still super hot with about 1300F
I cinched my eyebrows a bit while I was laying in front of it to get the shot :oops:
Life as a lava tour guide was always exciting
LMAO, again...
Like...disturbingly gross...and beautiful at the same time... haha
Truly amazing though!

Really like the Pahoehoe Yvonne. In the past I had the chance to admire the colors reflected once it had cooled but "hot" does have some personality!

Caught this little guy sunning him/herself yesterday by the barn. I think it is a Milk Snake and actual size is about a boot lace diameter.

cool snake, I really love snakes a lot

And yeah, the pahoehoe lava is more than amazing. So many amazing forms and structures just created right in front of your eyes.
I miss my old job a lot. It was so much fun

This could be considered borderline cheating so I am just going to throw these all on as a "ZOO MONTAGE". I discovered that zoo's are a great place to develop and work on perspective. To learn how your camera works. (More so it measured that I had a lot of room for improvement.)
