Thank you very much, it is an unusual place indeed.

Very other-worldly. If you’d said you created this entirely in some digital program out of your imagination, I’d have believed it! Great shot.
Ha ha, I see what you mean. No this is a real place although the actual geyser was caused by some folks accidentally drilling into a geothermal spring in the early 1900’s. Thanks!
Good lord! For more than a minute I thought this was a fountain painted in the strongest of hues … that this is natural is most amazing!Fascinating! (Right I’m off to google Green Fly Geyser)
Thanks Vikram. It’s actually called Fly Geyser in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. This side of the geyser gets less of the hot spring water spray and has much more of these green algae. It’s unfortunately on private land.
What a beautiful thing of nature with such incredible colours! Gorgeously captured, love it!
Thank you Peter. It is an unbelievable place, but unfortunately on private land. I had special permission from the caretaker to photograph this beauty.
Amazing shot. A very unusual scene and well captured.
Thank you very much for the kind words, Dave!
Wonderful capture, what stunning place
Thank you Michelle, this is a very special place.
Amazing image, it looks so surreal.
Thanks, it was surreal to visit it too, and to wade around in this hot geothermal spring water.
Thank you very much, Lars :-)
Oh my goodness, what a stunning image, I love the colours, gorgeous capture :o)
Than for looking and the kind words, Josie
Sweet shot! I’ve always wanted to go see this…. I understand it is a bit hard to find.
