Hot Springs

By pamelajean
With a bit of navigational assistance from my brother, I ventured into the Spanish wilderness of undulating dirt roads on my bicycle in search of the hot springs that I had heard about. The ride was worth the effort, but my pictures are mainly of the fascinating details in the rocks where the water falls. It forms shallow pools where people bathe for therapeutic reasons, but the water was far too hot for me! What I really needed was to cool off. I didn't take pictures of the pools because children were bathing there in the nude.....oops.
My lens kept getting steamed up.
5 versions for you, and these are the true colours.

Extraordinary set. V1 works best as an abstract for me, but I love the flow of water in V4 and V5.

I like all of these Pamela the colours are very special and the wonderful shapes and textures but I have to say v5 is the most amazing shot of these lovely pools and the patterns are wonderful in this one
Had to chuckle about your lens steaming up though.... my glasses did that in the butterfly house and I could not see a thing Smile

Hi Pamela , All five versions are superb, BRILLIANT IMAGES ! I prefer V3 with V4 being a close second . V3 has wonderful colours with fanastic textures in the rocks and this alone is very eyecatching, but for me the inclusion of the flowing water with a slight time exposure adds more interest to the image giving the eye in my opinion something more to look at. Kind regards , Mickey
