I have seen the geothermal activity of this spring ebb and flow over time, and with it, the colors produced by thermophilic microorganisms. The water trickling over the terraces gives the effect of a frozen shimmering waterfall. I used masking fluid on the terrace rims and in trickle patterns on the slopes to preserve the white of the paper. I then layered increasingly deeper and cooler values.
