The Champagne Pool; It was formed by a hydrothermal eruption 900 years ago. The crater has a diameter of about 213 feet and the 160 degree Fahrenheit geothermal pool is 230 feet deep. The colours are in part formed by sulfur and arsenic. The waters are the most colorful geothermal area in the New Zealand. It’s known as the Champagne Pool at the Artist’s Palette at the Wai-o-tapu Thermal Wonderland.
“In March, due to a natural phenomenon Siberia’s Lake Baikal is particularly amazing to photograph. The temperature, wind and sun cause the ice crust to crack and form beautiful turquoise blocks or ice hummocks on the lake’s surface.” Photograph by Alex El Barto.
Stunning Shots of Fly Geyser, Nevada's Hidden Treasure
Nevada's Fly Geyser. Accidentally created in 1916 during well drilling, the geyser started spewing water in the 1960s when a geothermally heated pack of water found a weak spot in the wall and began escaping. Dissolved minerals rose and accumulated creating the mound on which the geyser sits. Water now continually spews into the air, reaching up to 5 feet, making it resemble a miniature volcano.
