Fly Geyser Gerlach

Fly Geyser Gerlach Gerlach, Nevada, United States Fly Geyser is located by the Black Rock Dessert in Northern Nevada where the famous Burning Man festival is held every year. It's a place of pure magic and bliss. Fly Geyser is not an entirely natural phenomenon; it was accidentally created by well drilling in 1964 exploring for sources of geothermal energy. The well may not have been capped correctly, or left unplugged, but either way dissolved minerals started rising and accumulating, creating the travertine mound on which the geyser sits and continues growing. Water is constantly released, reaching 5 feet (1.5 m) in the air. The geyser contains several terraces discharging water into 30 to 40 pools over an area of 30 hectares (74 acres). The geyser is made up of a series of different minerals, but its brilliant colors are due to thermophilic algae. Shot on the Canon 5d3 with 24-70L + 70-200L II/Aerial shots were accomplished with the DJI Phantom 2 with H3-3D gimbal and a GoPro Hero 3/Music: Odesza - Memories that you call (feat.
