Fun Link Friday: Biei’s Blue Pond

This wintry scene is brought to you by Spoon & Tamago, who featured some of Kent Shiraishi’s photos of the blue pond in Biei (美瑛), Hokkaido. The water contains a high degree of aluminum hydroxide, which is why it appears so blue.

One of the photos is used as a wallpaper for the Mountain Lion OSX and was a runner-up in the National Geographic Photo Contest 2011.

Via Spoon & Tamago, via Kent Shiraishi & MyModernMet.
