Great wilkinsonsg 2008-07-24 9:12

Beautiful image, I like your POV and the colours are fantastic, I particularly like the 'milky' colour of the lake - is this a result of algae blooms or chemical run off?

Neither ... nore.
It is water piped here from glaciers in tunnels of more than 20 kilometers in order to fill the nearby reservoir. In this water there's particulate material (powdered stones) which in sunlight causes this special colour effect - so it's a natural colour.
Please excuse my poor English. I hope I could explain it.
