Artist's Description

Featured in VOLCANOES, Earth Geology & Atmosphere – June 4, 2010

Located in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA
It was named in 1878 when minerologist Dr. Albert Peale studied the geysers deposits. They reminded him of spines on echinoderms – starfish and sea urchins.
Millions of spine-shaped deposits surround Echinus Geyser. Iron, arsenic, manganese and aluminum are all found in the acidic fountain of water that showers the landscape. With each eruption, these metals help build miniature, rust-colored sinter spines.

Canon XSi with 18-55mm lens, f/8, 1.400sec, ISO-200, 24mm.
