We are fortunate to live beside a lake with very clear water. Effectively capturing its clarity in a photo is difficult.

Real estate ads for properties on lakes in the area with clear water commonly include photos like this, taken looking down on the water from our dock. Plants on the lake bottom, under about 3 feet of water, are clearly evident — but it does not provide a good perspective.

The short video above shows how you can watch fish in the lake from your kayak. I think they are bluegills.

Pictures of lily pads in the lake taken from the kayak give a better perspective of the water’s clarity.

This Painted Turtle was also enjoying a day on the lake. It is easy to see these turtles swimming under the water, but getting a photo of this is tough.
