The fascinating geothermal wonderland, Rotorua, New Zealand :))
June 2008

The milky colour of the water of Sulphur Bay is caused by particles of sulphur being suspended in the water. This sulphur has been produced by hydrogen sulphide gas rising from the lake.
The smells of Sulphur Bay and Lake Rotorua are from sulphurous gases belched from the depths of the Earth and resemble rotten eggs !!
Steam and gases can be heard bubbling and roaring to the surface through vents and pools :))
