Yellowstone national park, Mammoth Hot Springs, Wyoming, USA.
This is a closeup shot of the hot springs flowing over calcium deposits and thermopiles (bacteria that loves very high temperature environment, usually they colour surrounding environment in orange, yellow, brown and red colours).
Played a little bit with shutter speed to emphasize colours and details of calcium deposits with the hot spring's *milk* flowing effect in the background.

I just commented a picture from Wyoming, the black hole in my brain's USA map, stating that it's a beautiful and very varied nature unlike my first thought that Wyoming roughly is a huge plain.
And then suddenly just another proof shows up! Although here is more because of you. This is creativity at its best. I love the simpleness, but I can imagine taking this image was not very easy. So that's perhaps why this is such a new idea to me. It's great to see how dry those rocks look. Anyway, this is a top-class picture, and I really love it!

une superbe photo de nature, mais on ne voit pas tellement bien les rapides. On les devine plutôt. Un rendu parfait des textures.

впечатляющее зрелище!!! Отличная презентация тамошней природы. Классная идея сделать диагональную композицию.
