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.

wow, amazing place to see in person i bet!
If I ever make it to New Zealand, I'll have to put this place on my travel list.
and you're right, the orange, greens, and blues blend so smartly together don't they.
excellent vertical presentation with the curves.

wow this is so beautiful. I love volcanic landscapes they are often so full of color! This is spectacular with the orange being so intense. Great composition too with the lovely curve in the foreground and a triple layer of color. The steam adds a very nice touch. It is a beautiful place.

bel taglio verticale, le striature colorate aumentano il senso di profondità e catturano l'attenzione, contrastando con il cielo splendidamente.

Like the colours and the way you have used them to structure the image from their use as a line in from the left and in an arty, graphic compositional kind of way too. Nicely done.
