Bog Iron Brook

Iron-rich waters n the north side of the Blue Hills, Milton (just south of Boston), Massachusetts, USA.

It has been a wet year (Boston will probably break the July rain record), and the bacteria eating iron in streams are having a heck of a year. The bacteria form filamenteous, billowing, pillow-like mats on the stream beds, as seen here. Just downstream of here, one of the first iron foundries in New England … failed. The stream bottom *really is* a lurid, glowing orange.
