D is for danger and drama

Among the stones
And over the water,
From spot to spot,
Piercing the darkness,
A shining fire
Lights up and flees.
Take care! Take care!
From afar, from near,
In the green grass,
Beneath the cypresses,
Like mobile flames,
Or frozen beams,
Here come the souls
Of the departed!

Faust Libretto

One of the geothermal wonderlands of New Zealand sculpted by volcanic activity. A wondrous sight tinged with danger amidst scalding pools of minerals where sulphur fumes abound as though the very gates of hell have opened here.
