hi David,

water is black because it's actually... black.... not caused by cloud or lack of light or anything like this. all the hills around are covered with heather and it's believed that its small particles give waters around black color. i have couple of pictures from powerscourt waterfall (it's about 20 km from location of this pond) and water has the same brown/black color.

Hi Greg,

Correct, you see the same thing in Scotland. It's more a very dark brown colour,
like a pint of Guinness.
Caused by the peat topsoil.
These are some fine panos and the first one is my favourite.

Cheers,

André
