Thanks Carlos. The colour is caused by the fine material washed down from the glaciers.

It would have been nice to spend more time waiting, or maybe find a different view point. That's the drawback with organised bus tours.
Anyway, the weather could have been worse. It actually was during my first visit!

Im Jahr 2000 habe ich an der Stelle gestanden, an welcher das Foto gemacht wurde, und ich war verblüfft über die phantastische Farbe des Sees!
Von Fotos vor der Reise kannte ich den Lake, aber dass er in Natura auch diese tolle Farbe aufweist, war schon überwältigend!

Yes the colour is caused by what is termed as Glacial flour rock that is so pulverised it has the texture of flour. The colour does vary from place to place
