World's Clearest Lake Yields Stunning Photos

Still Waters

It's not every day that you get to take underwater photos in the clearest lake on Earth, in which nobody has before been allowed to dive. But that's just the chance that photographer Klaus Thymann got in February on a trip to Blue Lake on New Zealand's South Island.

After getting approval from the government and the native Maori people, who consider the lake a sacred site, Thymann put on a wetsuit and went into the water before snapping away.

Visibility in the lake stretches up to nearly 260 feet (80 meters), according to Robert Merrilees, a hydrologist with the New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research.

that's clearer than the air quality in most places .... what have we done to the world .... :no:
