Photographer Michael Sprill wanted to capture the Milky Way over the amazing landscape of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. He used a long exposure to capture the night sky and a flashlight to shine on Silex Spring, spotlighting the geothermal pool. He was very excited about the results, “The steam coming off the water really makes the photo look magical!” Photo by Michael Sprill. Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 11/20/16.
Another beautiful sunset on the road through California. That funny looking thing is a Joshua Tree, in Joshua Tree National Park. Photo by Ben Pelta-Heller. Tweeted by the US Department of the Interior, 11/25/16.
