Photo of the Day – Intensely Green Lake Bethmale in the South of France
High in the mountains at over 1,000 metres in altitude, we discovered a gem-like lake of emerald green water that reflected the sky, trees, and overhanging mountains like a mirror. The waters of Le Lac De Bethmale in the Ariege region of the Midi-Pyrenees were some of the cleanest and clearest I had ever seen. And today’s afternoon walk around this stunning lake was very peaceful.
Legend says that the blue-green waters get their hue from the long dark skirts of the wicked witch who was chased into the lake after vexing the villagers in times long past.
This green-on-green photo is a perfect example of just one view from one tiny corner of the lake.
