Forest Fire Across Yellowstone Lake
Yellowstone National Park is ablaze. A huge heat-formed cloud rises above the smoke from this lightning-started forest fire across the beautiful Yellowstone Lake. A thermal feature (they are everywhere in YNP) is visible at the waters near edge. Closer in the picture are white trees - killed by the minerals they have absorbed. A circular polarizer filter was used to reduce glare and increase contrast in this picture.
