That's one heck of a geyser. I assume that's water/steam rushing out of the vent.

Also are those stars in the background? Or are the water droplets. If they are stars, could you please share your settings since I think others might be interested in duplicating this effect.

Good submission.

Aloha

Thanks Selvin,

This is Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park. It was shot at about midnight under a full moon with a Coolpix 8800 at a one minute exposure, most likely at f8.

The moon is behind me. Yes those are all stars in the sky.

Good work. I have seen this technique used in the eastern Oregon dessert. On a dark night well away from man-made lights and just the moon and stars for light, the photographer made a very long exposure (20 minutes, I think) and the resulting photo looked like midday sun. I don't recall if there were any star traces in the photo.
