Caption: Geothermal pool, Hierve el Agua, Oaxaca state, Mexico. This site includes waterfall-like rock formations or curtains that rise many metres from the valley below to a set of artificial and natural pools on a shelf looking out over the surrounding mountains. The larger pools are used for swimming. The water rises from hot springs and deposits these calcium carbonate mineral rock formations. Photographed in November 2012.
