Geology Photo of the Week #13 – Nov 25-Dec 1

So the 13th photo of the week is this sweet as pic of boiling mud from New Zealand’s North Island. Both photos were taken by me in July of 2009. I had to stand at the ready for quite a while to try and get good pictures of the bubbles bursting and there were many failed attempts. On the whole I think I did pretty well.

  1. It is indeed difficult to get a good picture of bubbling, boiling mud pots!
