I have a couple of other topics in mind, but I haven't finished going through and sorting my pictures. The two main topics I thought I'd cover most of the locations we visited, so I wanted to have all sorted and processed before I pick and choose what I want.

In the mean time, I thought I'd post two more pictures, this time of a man-made building. They were taken inside the Old Faithful Inn.

First, the lobby:



It's a great place for a wide angle lens. I think all of the wood was obtained within the park (or the surrounding area).

The dining room has frosted glass windows along one wall. They were interesting, too.



Both pictures were taken with the K20 - the windows with the 77 Ltd and the lobby with the 12-24. I was very glad to have the 12-24 on this trip as I used it constantly.

Thanks for the complements, I had a wonderful time taking all these pictures. I have a love-hate relationship with the 12-24 - it sometimes has trouble focusing on simple things and it isn't as sharp as a couple of my other lenses, but it has nice contrast and color, and the perspective is often very useful.

Excellent work in very tough lighting Harriet, the first one does a good job showing the size of this place.

The Old Faithful Inn is well worth a visit, just for the unique old building. I think it would be wonderful to stay there a couple of days, but don't suppose I'll ever manage that (they book up very quickly). I was fascinated by the strange shapes of the wood they used. There's a terrace you can sit on above the portoco that looks out onto Old Faithful itself - I think it would be wonderful to sit up there, sipping an iced teaand watch the geyser erupt.

As Tom says, very good DR and very good use of your 12-24, you're pushing me even though I don't have any fundsfor lensbuying right now.

A fascinating building, but what is it? An Inn where you can stay over night?
