A study in green

Wednesday was a cloudy day on Thompson River and when I chanced upon this scene the dark clouds were spitting tiny drops of rain. Because the light angle was just right, this crystal clear pond took its color from the mountainside behind it.

A study in green


  1. That’s really cool! Had you not said otherwise, I would have thought algae slime…except perhaps algae slime does not make sense when one sees just how visible the tree trunk is under the water.

  3. Tabbie,

    That’s one my very rare photos that was taken near a road, but I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity because of the color. Several years ago I passed there and watched a moose feed in that pond.
