Welcome to the Flooded Meadow at Tyrol, Austria – a place that exists presumably, just so you can finally take advantage of that impulse-buy underwater camera of yours.
Normally a park for the locals, this area is transformed annually into an amazing scuba diving destination. Every spring the ice from the surrounding mountains melts, flooding the meadow with crystal clear water 1 – 10 meters deep. Deepest in the spring and early summer, and drying out almost completely for the winter months.
