Every spring, melting snow creates a dreamscape in Tragöss, Austria. Green Lake, which for most of the year is no more than six feet deep, expands with the inflow of snowmelt, swallowing part of the park that surrounds it: trees, hiking trails, benches, bridges, and all.
The clear water is shocking and amazing! One would expect the water to be cloudy due to it being flood water, however it must be so clear due to the very slow rise of the water. Thank you for this glimpse into another world!
