This image comes from the lower falls of the Yellowstone River.  The Brink of the Lower Falls trail takes you from parking along North Rim Drive to the top of the falls.  While the trail is pretty steep, views from the observation platform and noise from the water are well worth the effort.

Before arriving at the observation platform, the trail parallels to the Yellowstone River.  There are several rapids along this stretch of the river that make for images with an abstract or watercolor effect.  This image was taken with a shutter speed of 0.4 seconds, so use a tripod to eliminate photographer induced blur.
