Caption: Geyser Valley, Kamchatka, Russia. Steam rising from vents in the ground in the geothermal area of Geyser Valley, the second-largest geothemal area in the world. Geothermal areas form where volcanic activity causes hot water to rise up from beneath the Earth's surface, creating features such as geothermal pools, geysers and mudpools. Geyser Valley is 6 kilometres long and had around 90 geysers. In June 2007, a massive mudflow engulfed large amount of the valley, covering many of the geysers. Photographed in June 2006.
