Carpeted pond

I have shot photographs of this pond before, but there is something strange going on now.

At first you may think that beyond the foreground there is a luxuriant meadow. Take a closer look and it appears to be a lush green carpet. But I would not advise you to try walking on this carpet, because you would get rather wet.

I am not sure what is going on this season. Apparently the surface of this pond is covered with some kind of algae bloom, so perfect and continuous that it almost does not seem possible.

  1. There's something very nice about this image. I'm not sure that I can put "why" into words, but I really like it.
