A Park That Turns Into A Incredible Underwater Park In Spring

A Park That Turns Into A Incredible Underwater Park In Spring
Grüner See (Green Lake) is a lake in Styria, Austria, near the town of Tragoss, known for its shimmering, emerald green hue and its fluctuating depth throughout the year; at times leaving a park completely submerged in it. During winter, the lake is only 1-2 meter deep and the surrounding area is used as a county park. It is a particular favorite site for hikers. But as the temperature starts rising in the spring, the ice and snow on the mountaintops begins to melt and runs down into the basin of the land below. The lake swells up to engulf the entire area, including the park. During summer, the lake reaches its maximum depth of around 12 meters and is claimed to look the most beautiful at this time. Every spring this park shifts from trekkers and gives its way to underwater explorers by turning into a literal swimming pool.

The site has proven to be an attraction for divers, inviting them to plunge in and explore the spectacular underwater park, fully adorned with a bridge and a bench. The alpine grasses and flowers of the meadow are visible in full bloom under the water. Furthermore, one can even see benches, a bridge and walking trails. Photographer and diving enthusiast Marc Henauer was able to experience the underwater park firsthand and capture some enchanting images while down there.

These incredible pictures of the Green Lake in Austria have won the 3rd place in the 2014 National Geographic Travel competition.

The Death of Richard Parker And Cannibalism - Shipwreck Case (1884)

T he English yacht Mignonette was a 19.43 net tonnage, a 52-foot cruiser built in 1867. It was an inshore boat, not made for long voyages. In 1883, she was purchased as a leisure vessel by Australian lawyer John Henry Want. The yacht could only reasonably be transported to Australia by sailing, but she was a small vessel and the prospect of a 24,000-km voyage hampered Want's initial attempts to find a suitable crew. She finally set sail for Sydney from Southampton on 19 May 1884 with a crew of four: Tom Dudley, the captain; Edwin Stephens; Edmund Brooks; and Richard Parker, the cabin boy. Parker was 17 years old and an inexperienced seaman. O n 5 July, the yacht was running before a gale, around 2,600 km northwest of the Cape of Good Hope. Though the weather was by no means extreme and the vessel was not in any difficulties, Dudley gave the order to heave to so that the crew could enjoy a good night's sleep.
