Karahayit Springs-Pamukkale, Denizli.
Red thermal water in Karahayıt, just 5 km north of Thermal springs in Karahayıt are formed as a result of active geologic activities of Aegean region. Due to the iron ions in the thermal waters in Karahayıt, the red travertine is formed. Thermal water's temperature is between 23.3 and 57.5oC.
Due to the minerals existing in its structure, the hot spring water spreads reddish color to the environment and it is believed that they provide healing to the visitors for 5000 years.

Hello Sezai,
I had never heard of these gorgeous mineral filled waters until I viewed your beautiful image. I checked them out on the web and they were not only extremely colorful, but quite interesting to read about and view. Wonderful detail and just the right exposure. Great notes. TFS!
