Lens-Artists Challenge #52 – Serenity

The theme from Tina for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is: Serenity.

These are a few of my favorite places of calmness, peacefulness and serenity.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Elements

“For this week’s challenge, explore the classical elements of earth, air, water, and fire. How do you capture something invisible like air or the movement of water?” – 

No place is like Yellowstone National Park that includes all the elements on this planet we call home. Its vast land covers mountains and flat land, waterfall, and volcano.

“Yellowstone National Park spans an area of 3,468.4 square miles (8,983 km2), comprising lakes, canyons, rivers and mountain ranges. Yellowstone Lake is one of the largest high-elevation lakes in North America and is centered over the Yellowstone Caldera, the largest supervolcano on the continent. The Caldera is considered an active volcano. It has erupted with tremendous force several times in the last two million years. Half of the world’s geothermal features are in Yellowstone, fueled by this ongoing volcanism. Lava flows and rocks from volcanic eruptions cover most of the land area of Yellowstone. The park is the centerpiece of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the largest remaining nearly-intact ecosystem in the Earth’s northern temperate zone. The vast forests and grasslands also include unique species of plants.”

There are also staircases to walk down to the river and walk up. I chose to take the staircase. Here I was, in the yellow shirt.
