World Underwater

At Austria's Grüner See, spring is a time of transition. Warmer days melt snow so dramatically that the lake rises by 30 feet, covering benches, trees, and even hiking paths. These underwater scenes only last a few weeks before the semi-permanence of a summer lake takes over. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
