Scuba Diving In A Flooded Meadow

The "Grüner See" (Green Lake) is situated in upper styria, Austria. It is amazingly beautiful because of its deep green/blue color and the surrounding alpine scenery. The lake itself dries up in autumn but fills up with melting water. The water itself of the lake is extremely pure, like glass. The color is a result of light refraction.

Here's the poster's description:

"The night before there seemed to be heavy rain and too much of the pollen was flushed into the water and was floating. So the visibility could be much better, I've missed the „crystal clear“ water. You have to know the Green Lake is famous for its clear water. The good thing for this day was the water level with 9,40m. Spring flowers, plants, benches, hiking trails were below the surface. And i have found out when its the best time during the two to three months "flood" to get in the water - I was to early in this season. Although the water temperature was between 5 and 6 degrees Celsius I did two dives (85 and 96 minutes long).

My face was well frozen, I could hardly speak after wards. I hoped this procedure kept my face young and skintight. After watching the footage it seemed to be different." - Alex. Be.
