Transparency + Reflection

Challenge #1 in the WaterWorld series. Hosted by Deleted pending purge.
Challenge has finished
The object of this Challenge is to include both transparent and reflective view of the water surface in the same frame. It can be done in various ways, and it's up to you to pick your own way to present it - but it has to be one-shot photo, NOT a composition. The transparent part of the picture has to show some underwater detail. The reflected part may or may not reflect anything special, since even a muddy water can reflect, but it can hardly have any usable transparency at all. The photographs in this Challenge should aim to present the clarity of waters around us, which we associate with health, joy, well-preserved natual resource and its unique beauty.

Beautiful turquoise waters of Emosson's lake, in Valais, Switzerland. I took this shot last month shot, from the dam of the same name.
