Grand is one thing, but Glorious is another. The ordinary visitor sees Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park and from ground level is only marginally impressed. Yes, it’s big, and there are some nifty colors in the water, but it’s also steamy and gigantic you can’t comprehend it very well. It’s just too much to take in. So, many people come and go from Grand Prismatic Spring not having really seen it.
The only way to grasp the glory of Grand Prismatic Spring is from overhead. But remember, this is a US national park and aviation of every kind, including helicopters and drones, is prohibited.
That is where the services of your photographic professional make all the difference. A very few have taken the “brute force” approach and waded through the months — nay, years — of paperwork, permits and expense to actually hire a helicopter, hover, and shoot. They got very nice photos. But being a creative professional, I summoned some creativity and hiked up the small, steep mountain to the south. I not only got some exercise, but the photograph as well. And here you have it. You’re welcome. (Pricing Schedule D)
