The Blue Lagoon

Uploaded: April 25, 2008


Indeed it is the Blue Lagoon, sans Brooke Shields, as it is at Blue Springs and this is a lagoon. The springs produce a flow of over 140 million gallons per day. When I first looked at this image on the monitor, I thought the reflection of the Spanish Moss on the left looked like steam rising up from the water until I realized it was the reflection.
