Photographer's Note

South of the Tomaszów Mazowiecki town, in place
where the Pilica river turns to the east making
a large-radius loop, on its right bank the Blue Springs comes about, which belong to the most beautiful natural features of the Polish Lowlands. These are the most interesting springs in Poland.
The Blue Springs represent karst springs rising from the sandy bottom. The bright sandy bottom
is in constant motion, throwing upwards streams of sand due to Pulsating water flow. The pulsating sand, as seen through the water, shows different hues of unique bluegreen color, which depends on weather conditions, This specific colour results from the fact, that clear water filtrated by sand and limestones and bearing some amount of dissolved calcium carbonate, absorbs red rays letting in blue and green rays reflected from sandy bottom. It is, therefore, an effect of deflection and reflection of sunrays.
