Hello!do you know why this water is green in this lake?amazing!!!
Devils Bath - "A large ruggedly-edged crater adjoining the bush line with amazing natural water colour at its base. The colour is the result of excess water from the champagne pool mixing with sulphur and ferrous salts. Changes in colour through Green to Yellow are associated with the amount of reflecter light and cloud cover" - Well thats what it says in the guide and who am I to argue !!!
Well, they do have a 'Blue Lake' in South Australia, near Mt Gambier & that one is called such due to the amount of stuff in the water that reflects light, & it changes colour according to the seasons. But the name remains. Mind you, it is not as blue as this is green! Lakes below glaciers often have a tinge of colour in them and that is due to the amount of stuff that has worn off rocks as the ice passes over the rock, grinding it down. Eventually that ends up in the rivers etc. Cheers from NZ!
