Moments of Eternity

One of the most alien-looking places on earth is Fly Geyser in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada. It is an incredible experience to admire the rising Milky Way above the boiling water spouting geyser at new moon. Standing in 50°C hot water and at the same time experiencing the chilly air of the night together with the impressive sounds of the geyser is simply exhilarating.
Unfortunately, it is no longer possible today to experience this scenery or to repeat the image with today’s more advanced camera technology. This is because the geyser has been vandalized in the meantime. As a result, it completely changed its appearance. It lost its bizarre fountains, shape and clear color separation. This is another example why it is so crucial to rigorously protect such rare and phenomenal places.
