Photographer's Note

Just a start - The "Blue Pool" at Furzebrook in Dorset. The water here is fantastic to see, it seems to change colour almost by the minute, it's anything from a deep blue to a rich turquoise.
The reason for this is clay (Purbek clay used to be mined here). Mining was abandoned in the 1880's and this place naturally filled with water. We did note that nothing lives in the water as there is no oxygen, another aspect to add to the colour changes apparently.
The nature around here is surprisingly friendly, chaffinches ate with us and none of the wildlife seemed to show any fear of humans (very refreshing).
We walked all around and although we did get better pictures of the colour of the water, we felt this one shows a more complete view. It really is an oasis.
No tripod as it was taken whilst up a tree!

Still, we are up for any critique that can be offered.
- dont climb trees is the obvious one :)
