Photographer's Note

Among the well-known features of the thermally active areas of the Rotorua District is the Champagne Pool at Waiotapu, about 25 kilometres south of the city. The contrast of colours is amazing, deep green of the mineral rich waters & the bright orange deposits on the poolside. Water temperature is around 75°C and the quantity of carbon dioxide in the water gives it the effervescence appearance of champagne. Blue skies & the white spring clouds highlight the colours of the pool.
