The world’s clearest lake is the Blue Lake – located in the top part of New Zealand’s South Island. Scientifically verified reports show visibility of up to 76 metres – compared with distilled water visibility of 70-80 metres.
The lake is in a restricted conservation area, and entering the lake, let alone diving, is prohibited. It is a 2-3km hike to get to the lake. Working closely with New Zealand’s Department of Conservation, photographer Klaus Thymann was allowed to conduct the first ever dive in the lake.
The lake, which in Maori is called Rotomairewhenua, is sacred, and the local Maori tribe, Ngati Apa, was consulted about the dive. Equipment was carefully prepared and a special permit to land a helicopter granted, and on a clear sunny day, the dive was conducted.
Blue Lake is located 1,200m above sea level and receives water from another lake above it. The top lake is above the tree line, meaning its water is relatively unblemished by run-off from overhanging foliage.
From the top lake, water is filtered through a moraine (glacial debris), before finally creating the Blue Lake. The water of the entire lake is replaced around every 24 hours.
is this a really bad idea? I feel like she’d definitely be supportive to my AMAB “cross-dressing”/non-normative clothes, but if she’s not then I’m basically screwed forever

Transgender people in Greece are now being rounded up and detained in a continuation of the social cleansing of the “undesirables”.
