Mountain lakes are very spectacular phenomena .....

 
Plum Lake in Autumn
 
 
Crystal Clear
 
 
Lago Goillet
 
 
Eldorado Peak
 

These natural water reservoirs are of the various size. Sometimes they disappear during a heavy drought or in the area of a more porous rocky bottom. Their colours origin from dissolved minerals from surroundings, not from reflections of sky or clouds, and they are, in fact, some kind of mineral solution. A rich blossom of some microorganisms like cyanobacteria or algae can also colour these waters. There is a good example of such lakes-ponds in Polish mountains called Rudawy Janowickie. Three small lakes: "Purpurowe", "Błękitne" and "Zielone" are coloured by Fe- and Cu-solutions as well as by algae. A range of mountain lakes colours is from white, through grey, light green, dark green, light blue, red, purple, up to dark brown, even black.
PRESENTING THEM WE MUST REJECT COLOURS COMING FROM ANY REFLECTIONS !

Thanks to everybody who improved this album!!!

Some pictures made by our SP colleagues are very special. A turquoise colour of lakes is probably most frequent in mountains.
Thank you, Alex, for your interest !!!
Have nice moments !!!

Thanks Romuald for this beautiful Album. The mix of colors, and the parameters of the non-reflective photos make for a challenging opportunity. I love high mountain lakes.
