Kerosine creek in infrared 2 by 

Another in the series of infrared photos Ive been experimenting with

Kerosine Creek hotwater stream, Rotorua, North Island, New Zealand

The water in this stream runs at between 36 and 40 degrees celsius, the perfect temperature for a nice long hot soak after a hard day out taking photos.
