A Beautiful Flood

Though these words are not typically seen together, as we typically associate floods with the havoc they wreak on society and our homes and infrastructure; when it comes to natural landscapes, flooding can be a beautiful thing.  Redbull recently posted photos of Austria’s Gruner See, where most of the year visitors can walk around the park on footpaths and wooden bridges.  However, every summer the park is inundated by approximately 12 metres of cold, clear water from snowmelt in the Karst Mountains and the sight is a beautiful thing.
