Photographer's Note

The Yellowstone national park is a volcanic caldera. This shot was taken in the Mammoth Hot Springs area. As hot water rises through limestone, large quantities of rock are dissolved by the hot water and a white chalky mineral is deposited on the surface. I looked at this and thought to myself is this our dear old EARTH?
