    Earlier I thought that this phenomenon is similar to the Blood Falls of Antarctica. But it does not look like they are similar. Here, I think, only the rock is red in colour whereas in the Blood Falls the water itself is red.

      Although the source of the red in both instances is most likely the same – iron oxide.ReplyCancel

    The first photo is a real beauty to my eye. I love the diagonals and complementary colors. Well done (as always).ReplyCancel
