These plants bloom red in spring.

Brown water because of natural sludge after two weeks of stopless raining. The ground of the lake is a moor, so the moor sludge gets to the surface after long time of strong raining because of the deep streams that result from the increasing inflows, and the inflows bring sludge too because they go thru a vast moor area before they arrive the lake. Natural phenomenon, very beautiful to me. We live here (hometown).
