[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The river at Huang Long (Yellow Mountain) is actively depositing travertine along a distance of nearly four kilometres. Rimstone basins and veils of travertine over waterfalls form on the surface by processes that are more typical of underground cave systems. Calcium carbonate is leached from limestone upstream and precipitated along the river bed. The rimstone ponds are formed by differential precipitation, with a higher rate of precipitation at the edges. Wind action, especially during periods of stagnancy, probably also is an important factor in the upward growth of the rims.

Hello Neels,
your artistic approach towards landscape and natural scene is splendid. This one is lively with nice softness of the water and the tones of the forest. I like the natural formation and the water is cooling.
An excellent presentation with effective composition.


Ciao Neels immagine composta con cura, colori molto belli specie quello dell'orlo delle vasche che da un aspetto alla foto molto particolare, complimenti davvero bella.
