Currently, water is released. It is reaching about 1.5 meters in the air. According to wikipedia.or, the geyser exists several terraces which discharging water into 30 to 40 pools over an area of 30 hectares.
There are several photographers that express this amazing nature. As examples, Jared Ropelato said that “As you walk around Fly Geyser you notice that this thing has a bit of Beauty, and a bit of the Beast. A little Jeckyl and a little Hyde. The color however, is like a rainbow on all sides.”
Christian Klepp, an photographer, also described about the Geyser that “This weird and unearthly landscape could have existed somewhere on Jupiter’s volcanic moon Io….Such unearthly landscapes are rare on Earth, but they exist. Maybe this helps to imagine how Earth might have looked like at its very beginning. Heat and sulfur resistant bacteria feed on the boiling water of the geyser. Just like in the beginning of life on Earth.”
Fly Geyser is attracting numerous photographers and visitors to see and take photos of the place. Wrote on wikipedia, there only one way to access is a dirt road but visitors still can see it clearly as it is large enough to be seen from the road.
