I know what you mean about how close people get! This couple had their backs to it, too close for my comfort, with their iPhone and smiles ready for the geyser to fill in the background of the picture...

Wow! those vivid colors were totally unexpected. I'm assuming different chemicals in the water and rocks are producing them?

DrY is away on vacation this week, PHeymont, so he'll get back to you on his return. But I believe a lot of these colors are due to the highly specialized microorganisms that live in this environment.

Wow amazing pictures, beautiful colors, i love the ones with the yellow and orange colors. Is it true that under the Yellowstone Park is a giant vulcano and if it will be an eruption the whole America will be extinguished ?

Hi Andre, and welcome. As DrY is away on vacation, I'll try to answer your question before he gets back. Yellowstone National Park does sit on what is known as the "Yellowstone Hot Spot".

Hi PHeymont, Andre and DrFumblefinger, Just back from a winter break and glad to see many of you also like the brilliant colors associated with the geysers, pools and hot springs in Yellowstone! As of how the mesmerizing colors are formed, I know no more than my friend DrFumblefinger (thanks Karl for the explanation). I only know that was those incredible heat-loving thermophiles that somehow survived and produced those amazing nature wonders.

The images are beautiful and you were there on a perfect day -- not so cold that there was a lot of steam, and with beautiful sky to reflect on the unique terraced landscape. Love it!

The pictures don't do it justice. I've never seen anything like it. Maybe Asian rice terraces come closest.

One of the greatest hikes in North America is through the Upper Geyser basin on a nice summer day! Thanks for showing us why.
