Short walk to see a special natural phenomenom. Nice, short stop. No admission fee. Parking OK. Great to make pictures of the green lake and (wild) sea

Green, black, blue. Some sights you will never forget in your lifetime, this is one of them. It looks so wrong that you will never forget.

I like when nature shows me something extraordinary.This is it exactly. Colours of the place belong to the "almost impossible" category.
