Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone national park, Wyoming, USA.
One of the views of Mammoth Hot Springs. One can see a wooden walking path that goes from one point of interest to another. That is the only way to get to the viewing points in different interesting places. Cannot step down in the waters or kitty-corner as they have quite high temperature that can burn skin very easy and quickly and also the environment is very fragile and sensitive to any *unauthorized* activity :-)
Red colors of the spring is formed by so called thermopiles, colonies of bacteria that live in high-temperature environment.

I have enjoyed looking at your Yellowstone pictures as a reminder of just how beautiful it is. The colours of the spring and the blue sky are super and the POV has captured the curved shape of the raised board walk giving a lead in. A very competent and enjoyable image beautifully framed.
p.s. I will be there in February on a photography holiday which should be interesting in the depths of winter!

un endroit qui fascine les amoureux de phénomènes géologiques et géothermiques. Une photo très réussie dans ses couleurs avec ce mariage entre orangés et bleus , couleurs complémentaires.
On voit bien sur cette photo, les phénomènes thermiques.

Walking on wooden path with the hot fumes and vapor surrounds, must be quite an experience.
Anyhow, I like the red/brown color wet soil, looks as a giant cake...

wonderful composition of this Mammoth Hot Springs scenery. Beautiful colors, sharpness, clarity, great POV. The view is breathtaking a way with the blue sky and the kind of bridge. Wonderful and amazing atmosphere. Thanks for sharing. I like it.
All the best,

Great point of view: the walking-brigde/gangway
plays an importent role in this picture: it creates
a nice depth.
The great composition makes the picture nice
calmness and the great light management creates
the beautiful colors and details ( there are
no hard shadows in the picture)...Good work.
