Blue Lagoon

 

First time I saw this I thought it was a nuclear reactor ....

 

 

 

 

.... and this stuff was radioactive discharge in a cooling pond ....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In reality its the worlds largest Spa ... powered by the geothermal power station nearby ... The water gets its colour from minerals and a specific algae that thrives in it .
