The strange colour in the water is caused by collodial iron dissolved from the metal rich rock of the moor
Umm, it's "Colloidal". Sad that I know that, but I did Colloidal Crystallography as a special Chemistry project when I was at school. Anyway, 'nuff of all this kvetching, it is indeed an interseting shot, lovin' the heather that would thrive in that environment

Beautiful image with those wonderful colours, but too much geology and chemistry for this time of the morning :-)

Yummy greens, good place for bog snorkelling.

@Brockaly: Yes Magnetic
I love the greens and the pinks but I'm struggling to see what is so "strange" about the water.

@Curly: Now that you point it out the oily quality of the water I could see so clearly is not quite so apparent here :)

Here there is not much to see of the water cause of the reflection, but I have seen this interesting effect in other places ... Nice shot !! The colors and light are really great

Oh, yes, I wondered if we were talking stains used to distinguish acid mucopolysaccharides or if was that just another gaseous aggregate of mine.

@Ronnie 2¢: another gaseous aggregate of mine
I wonder if have the stomach for this. Fingers crossed for fair winds :)
Makes for a sweet hue in your shot.
