Minerals in the thermal waters give the 'Artist's Paletter', one of the natural attractions of Waiotapu Thermal Reserve about 25 kms south of the city of Rotorua. One of several major thermal areas around the Rotorua-Taupo region, Waiotapu (Maori for 'sacred waters') is regarded as the most colourful and is also the site of the Lady Knox Geyser.

Hi Neil, This photo reminds me the thermal waters in Yellowstone NP. So this is the main attraction of Rotorua, I suppose. amazing colours and the steam above ponds. beautiful clouds. Nice photo from an interesting place. Very strange this yellow colour.
