Bridge over warmer grounds

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Juan Carlos Hernandez

This picture was taken in the geothermal park of Wai-O-Tapu, few miles away from Rotorua in New Zealand's northern island. The place is absolutely surreal like walking in another planet and a combination of colours I have never seen in nature anywhere else. The fisheye contributed to create an even more surreal effect of a long road taking the traveller over bubbling and smelly grounds to a new amazing place.

Location: Wai-O-Tapu, Bay of Plenty region, New Zealand
