The colour of the lake is so turquoise, it’s almost unreal.
The colour is due to fine silt and clay (glacial flour), resulting from the glacial erosion of the Mount. The silt is so fine it does not settle to the bottom quickly, remaining in suspension in the lake water.
When sunlight hits the water, these particles absorb the shortest wavelengths: the purples and indigos. Meanwhile, the water absorbs the longer wavelength reds, oranges, and yellows. That leaves mainly blues and greens to get scattered back to our eyes.
Isn’t that amazing? ‘Clutter’ isn’t always that bad, you see ;)


Part of the collection 'Around the World and Here', travelling from my studio through my paintings during lockdowns.

It is never about where. It is about how it makes you feel. It is not about the location. It is about emotion. It is about where you are transported in awe of what you see: every colour, every shadow, every light, each brushstroke. It could be just within the 2 km from home, it could be in another hemisphere, on the other side of the sea. It could be around the world or here. It is anywhere you feel it is. It is in your home, on your wall, a window to look through, to escape, to sit and relax, to enjoy the serene satisfying emotion, the here and now.
