No clues to location in this picture but the camera has provided an accurate location by GPS. This image was taken with the camera on its normal colour setting but I am amazed at how close it is to monochrome. I could not have achieved that effect if I had tried! I converted it to grey scale. It is hard to tell the difference. The admins here have some funny ideas and would not allow me to publish the greyscale version. Wikimedia Commons is more relaxed and you can see both versions here: LinkExternal link and

It reminds me of the well known painting from ~1588, no longer ascribed to Pieter Bruegel the Elder: Landscape with the Fall of Icarus - LinkExternal link. In both that and my picture you miss at first sight the legs poking out of the water. But of course with my picture the owner of the legs surfaced safely a moment later.
