Posta Fibreno lake

Waiting for clearer water in winter time I edited some test shots filmed this summer.
In this period, warmer, slower moving waters increase the production of algae and allow it to accumulate in large blobs covering most of lake vegetation. Underwater shots are almost completely ruined by this mucilage, that constantly sticks to the port.
In the opening shots I got the front lens writing caught on the port. I have to put some black tape on it. Shame on me!
We will be back in water in January with a gin clear water.
For now, just a taste of this wonderful place.

Geologist found the mud crater being 7 meter deep. This effect should be created by spring water with different density and temperature. Mud particles are trapped in a inner lake.
Oddities of this lake doesn't stop there. The lake has a floating island large 30 meters trapped in a small circular pond. This island is made of peat, trees and roots. It moves freely inside the pond under the wind action. You find it in a different position at every hour. It's called "the rota" (something like "the wheel") and it's described in the Natural History by Pliny the Elder (AD 77).

A moving island? You definitely should take some time lapse video of that and include it in your next film. A captivating subject.
You gave me a good idea! You got a mention in the closing credits
