This is a view of Grand Prismatic Spring, in Yellowstone National Park, that not many people experience. Visible in this photo is a walkway that allows visitors to see portions of the spring from up-close, but viewing it from the walkway doesn't really allow one to imagine what it looks like as a whole. To see this view, you have to do a bit more walking, and, in all likelihood, you'll have to deal with some mosquitoes. Grand Prismatic Spring – the largest hot spring in the United States, and the third largest in the world – is almost otherworldly vibrant. The colors are caused by single-cell organisms that can grow along the edges of the spring. There are none in the center, since the water is too hot for such forms of life.
Available in the following sizes (Rectangle A): 8x10, 11x14, 16x20, 20x24, 24x30, 30x40, 40x50.
