[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is part of the most amazing natural history of NZ showing that the earth is maybe not quite finished yet.

The chain of eruption that racked the fault line during a fatefull night of 1886 created an entirely new thermal valley, still geothermally active, called Waimangu.

This picture was taken in a huge and active boiling mud pool which plops away merrily, forming lovely concentric paterns.

Very impressive.

Thanks for looking.

Hello LuDivine! Very interesting place. Interesting color. Original picture. Greetings from Poland!

Very good capture of this thermal wonderland Lu.

I like the the refections and your composition.
Framed nicely.

Hello LuDivine,

I was on holliday in 2005 in Wai-O-Tapu thermal wonderland by Rotorua and I see this mudpools around and in the city. It is amazing and it's stinks. Yes when you take a very good look to the mud you can see the lovely concentric patern. Regards and TFS Bob
