Little Limestone Lake is a majestic turquoise body of water. It is a marl lake that visibly changes color as the calcite in the water, dissolved from the limestone bedrock, chemically reacts to the heat of the sun. On hot days the water turns a rich milky blue. It is considered by experts to be the largest and most outstanding example of a marl lake in the world.
Unfortunately due to the massive amount of rain this summer the lake was much higher then normal. So much so that most of the shores and even some shallow islands were buried under water. It made navigating the shores difficult and limited. Next time we have to bring a boat to explore the whole lake. Since the landscape to shoot was limited in interest I decided to create my own. I found some pieces of drift wood and put them to good use.
I was able to find some interesting pieces of drift wood like these. (see above and below).
The color of Little Limestone Lake’s water is so beautiful. I felt like I was in the tropics.
