16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This is a photograph of one of many vibrant, wild and full of color hot springs in Yellowstone. This National Park sits on top of an active underground lava concentration that heats up many parts of this region. Microscopic organisms that thrive in this boiling environment add color and life to hundreds of acidic springs throughout Yellowstone.
