    Brilliant catch Mark,, amazing that this is natural light,, what an eye you possess!! how long was the exp?? another fav for sure!! that green is incredible!!

  • Thanks Linda, exposure was 75 sec. No its not natural light, the pool is lit by a large sodium floodlight. Even though the water is green, the sodium light just excentuates it.
