The Lake, Turtle Pond, Central Park, New York, USA

The colour of water for The Lake at Central Park, New York, with it's rowing boats, city scape backdrop and surprisingly, turtles.

There is definately a gold hue to the colour of water, maybe from the algea bloom which was occuring or that the sun was shining brightly in to the muddy abyss which resulted in this colour.

We were here for a couple of days to start the beginning of our travelling through the Americas, it was stunning and I really really enjoyed this part of the world.
