Austria Under Water

In Post-Apocalyptic, Surreal on February 1, 2012 at 11:43 am

You may be wondering what is a bench doing underwater. Was there a massive flood? Wait, is that grass?

This is the rare phenomenon called the Green Lake in Tragoess, Styria in Austria, located at the foot of the Hochschwab mountains. During the winter months, the park is a county park and a  popular hiking area for many. However, when Spring arrives, the snow from the nearby mountains melt and flood the park, creating a lake filled with crystal clear snowmelt, complete with its unique green colouring from the grassy lakebed.

Divers travel to the Lake to catch a glimpse of this surreal landscape in June when the waters are at their highest. But they have to catch it in time as it recedes by the end of July.
