Artist's Description

Featured in VOLCANOES, Earth Geology & Atmosphere – Jan 17, 2013

Pallette Spring, Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA

Near Liberty Cap at the beginning of the boardwalks is Palette Spring.
Water flows from a flat area and then down a steep ridge, creating a colorful hillside palette of brown, green, and orange (the colors are due to the presence of different heat-tolerant bacteria). This effect is much the same as an artist would achieve by allowing wet paint to run down a vertical surface.
Thermophiles, hot water loving bacteria, color the area mostly in oranges and browns.

Canon Eos 7D with 15-85mm lens, f/11, 1/400sec, ISO-160, 35mm focal length
