PS: The red is due to ferrous oxides and other minerals. It is not an uncommon sight in this interior volcanic wonderland.

Intensely dramatic and powerful. A violent gash has spewed blood harkening back to the days of Vikings with double handed swords and chain mail. Superb.
Love the texture of this picture…looks like tiny shards of metal all over. Brilliant red and yellow!
and I guess yellow is the sulphur.
A sneak-peek into nature’s lab.
What a red! Is it all lichen? Do you have photographs from any closer? Reminds me of your Death Valley pics (and less famously, mine), with all the mineral deposits and washes.
