Rainbow Lookout - Orakei Korako
I was drawn the the number of colors created in these silica terraces - by the minerals themselves and then the hot water algae living in these conditions. I like the eange from very dark to white. I like the hard definite lines at the edge of the water flow. It reminds me of those wonderful pictures from NASA on the astronomy picture of the day. And yet this is on the earth where the crust is very thin. The creation is very delicate and would likely be harmed if I step too close - AND I would be burned if I step too close. Like those space pictures - I can only look and not touch!
