Archive for the tag “water”

The other day was was reading a news article about a small lake near the westgate brdige that had turned pink. This pinkness in the water is caused by an algal bloom that is triving in the water. algal bloom colours can range from purple, pink, red and green.

this particular algal bloom at the park was pink.

here are two photos from my flickr page.

This drain that i have been to a million times in the past year or so isn’t the biggest drain and it doesn’t have any side tunnels. it’s just a big round concrete pipe that spans the length of 100 meters or so. So why do I feel the urge to visit it so often i hear you ask. Well the answer is half way down this big round pipe is a huge pipe that come out to the surface which lets in lots of natural light and the shape of it is truly great.

I have no idea of what this “sky light” half way down the tunnel is used for but it makes me happy walking to this area The engineering of this structure must have some use to it. I am sure the government wouldn’t waste tax payers money. *clears throat* In the area there is another similar smaller drain which stops at a dead-end with and has the same thing. a sky light. weird!

The first time walking towards the sky light you know its going to be a great tunnel to visit.

you don’t need to walk to the structure that i call the sky light but it’s not that far from the main entrance and it’s REALLY big and a great place to take things into perspective.

Upon entering the area where you walk though a foot of water to get to the inside of the tunnel you see the entrance to the tunnel and said skylight.
