Photographer's Note

In Rotorua one can get some idea what's under the crust of earth. Scene from hot springs of Whakarewarewa.

From Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley page:
"Here is where the earth’s crust is thinnest, where awesome drama unfolds daily as geysers erupt, mud pools bubble, steam hisses and warm water rains down.

Some 500 pools and at least 65 geyser vents, each with their own name, are found on this site. Seven geysers are active, the most famous, Pohutu, meaning big splash or explosion."

Scanned from negative.

Title Steam by Peter Gabriel on the album Us, 1992.
