Confluence of the Yellowstone River and Tower Creek
Fun with special affects, this exposure was long enough to smear the rivers flow significantly with an exposure of 1 second at f/22, ISO 100 using my 24mm lens. The river bends to the left, flowing away from me here and into the canyon wall.
Upstream from the confluence, the Yellowstone River turns a bend below this shallow canyon wall in the distance. This image was taken with my 24mm lens and an exposure of 1/25 seconds at f/4, ISO 100.
Tower Falls is far left of this image but the creek below the falls flows down and intersects the Yellowstone River at the lower left corner of this image. This image was taken with my 24mm lens with an exposure of 1/30 seconds at f/3.2, ISO 100.
To show the whole bend in the Yellowstone River, I used my 10mm fisheye lens for this shot. The Tower Creek enters the Yellowstone River on the lower left corner of this frame, just below the small rapids in the rover below the yellow cliff face. The river flows from the right, towards the left in this image. The area smelled of sulfur which may have come from what may have been a small fumerole at the base of the cliff slightly upstream in the Tower Creek canyon. I also suspect the yellow highlights in the cliff or canyon wall may be the result of sulfur rich deposits. This image was taken with an exposure of 1 second at f/22, ISO 100.
