Green Lake, is a lake in Styria, Austria in a village named Tragöß, Politischer Bezirk Bruck-Mürzzuschlag. The lake is surrounded by the Hochschwab mountains and forests. The name "Green Lake" originated because of its emerald-green water. The clean and clear water comes from the snowmelt from the karst mountains and has a temperature of 6–7 °C (43–45 °F). During the winter, the lake is only 1–2 m deep and the surrounding area is used as a county park. However, during the spring, when the temperature rises and the snow melts, the basin of land below the mountains fills with water. The lake reaches its maximum depth of around 12 m from mid-May to June and is claimed to look the most beautiful at this time. In July, the water begins to recede.
The Green Lake is a popular destination for divers.

Guten Tag Wolfgang,
Unusual scene for me to see scuba divers going into a beautiful alpine lake. Perhaps training, or searching, or?
I personally would prefer swimming here, then relaxing on Green Lake's shore.
Thanks for sharing,

Der See ist wirklich gruen! Das kann ein idealer See fuer Taucher sein, wenn das Wasser klar ist, das ist wahrscheinlich der Grund, die Farbe ist sehr Schoen und die Umgebung so frisch und freunlich

A beautiful green alpine lake. I guess it is deep because those divers have chosen to dive there. I also like the human presence the divers bring.

A picturesque alpine lake with the juxtaposition of the brightly lit scuba divers lends a great bit of foreground interest and leads the eyes into this inviting scene. Putting the vivid green water has added more impact to this shot. Splendid light, rich colours and overall contrast. Fine snap of the tranquil looking lake! TFS

Good morning Wolfgang,
Beautiful lake surrounded by high mountains, and stunning green tones it has.
Diving even for 12m there, must have a good reason - there are no sunken shipwrecks... I assume.
Nice taken the charming view.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

Guten Tag Wolfgang,
Love this capture, not something I would have expected to see. The divers sure make for a compelling feature, and really makes one stop and analyze the scene. We're generally accustomed to seeing only people at 'play' around a lake, so this moment and visual gives the association quite a twist. I can sure understand why it would be a popular spot though, no matter the activity, the water looks inviting and the pure natural beauty of the surroundings is hard to ignore. Nicely spotted and taken. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Hello again, Interesting note bout this changing levels of the lake. Fortunately for divers, it is shallow in winter. And what they see there that make it so popular? The colour of water is really beautiful.

Hallo mein Freund
I heard about the Loch Ness Monster of Scotland but never about four of those in the Green Lake!
I presume its a modern technique for goldpanning!!
Quite stunning natural dyes in water, indeed.

It should be a great experience to dive into that mountain lake Wolgang, attractive emerald water, lushy forest in the bg, o zi buna!
