    I just got back from a trip out to Montana and Wyoming and I took a ton of photos. Here are a few shots from the Thermal Pools & Hot Springs at Yellowstone National Park! I'd love to hear any comments, suggestions or general feedback!

    Thanks!

    Are thermal pools orange because they are so hot and is it volcanic?-sorry silly question but I was just wondering

    I really like the perspective on number 1 the colours are vibrant and fresh. the picture actully looks like it is hot, with the steam.

    the other 3, well what can I say

    ummm I likey!

    I really, really, really want to go back to Yellowstone Park to take photos. I was there when I was little, before I was into photography.

    These are nice shots - the colors are great. I just wish they were larger!

    Thermal pools are orange and yellow because of iron and sulfur in the rocks and/or water.

    I am pretty sure the colors are basically mineral deposits. It's not lava or anything. It's actually solid ground although you cannot step on it. The water is very hot...hence the steam. It's boiled from magma underneath the earths crust! These natural colors are simply the most amazing things I have ever seen!
