Central Pools at Waiotapu

The central pools of the Waiotapu Thermal Wonderland in New Zealand are my favourite. This look out is the best to see the majority of the geothermal attraction. The orange area in the top right is the iconic Champagne Pool. Overflowing water from the Champagne Pool brings up minerals that originated deep below the surface. As the water cools, it evaporates and exposes minerals that provide a showcase of colours. This area never looks the same each time I visit, as it changes depending on the sunlight and water level.
