Thank you. Itís actually a tailings dam. I think the yellow is some sulpherous salt. Very unpleasant place.

Martin, an excellent find and equally well captured.
Just exercise caution approaching such deceptively wondrous places!

Thank you. Yes. Dangerous places. I have spent a lot of time in places like this, and even more dangerous. I donít go alone and I am very careful. Thank you.

Deserved acclaim that image Martin!

Where exactly was this shot?
Northern Natal?
Eastern Highveld?
