Pool Opening: An Homage to Algae

What I like about pool opening this year are two things: we’ve been too busy to handle the labor of opening until this week-end, and the cool May has meant the pool is clear (we can see the bottom) . . . if also LOADED with algae. Here is my photo essay for Pool Opening 2013: An Homage to Algae.

Is that a cluster of eggs? I can't tell. More beautiful greenery.

For those who doubt this pool will ever be crystal clear, you do not know the power of shock. Stay tuned!
