Photographer's Note

if there is one place in Yellowstone National Park where you can really see the Earth in the making, it's the Canary Spring, which is part of the Mammoth Hot Springs. heat, water, limestone, and rock fracture combine to create bizarre terraces, where the travertine is deposited as white rock, while the microorganisms and living bacteria create beautiful shades of oranges, yellows, greens, and browns. the place is constantly changing - I overheard one of the rangers telling her friends that 10 years ago the edge of the forest was where the dead trees in the center of the photo are now, but since then the flow from the Canary Spring changed the direction.

about the photo: it was one of those gray and cold days when the dull light makes everything flat. but for the briefest of moments there was a small patch of blue sky that added a little life to the scene.
