29. October 2017 · Comments Off on Interesting geological formations in ‘t Zuth, Bakel · Categories: Scuba Diving, u/w photography

Today we went for our regular Sunday morning dive in ‘t Zuth near Bakel.

This lake is quite old but has been excavated further for its sand. In the middle it drops down to 20 meters, where the hopper has broken through a clay layer of 1 to 3 meters thick. This created some beautiful scenery, which looks like rock faces.

Combined with the good visibility, it always makes for a nice dive.

This morning we stumbled upon some interesting formations. It is more solid than clay (old tree trunks perhaps?) and shavings are dropping off. The colour, once lighted, is a vivid brown orange.

If you know what it is, drop me a mail!

Temperatures are dropping but the fun to be below the surface absolutely not!

Who imagined that we would find such great weather at the end of September? It was a bit dusty and dark, which made making photographs a bit of a challenge. We made 2 dives in the Grevelingen, at Dreischor and at “Het Koepelje”.

Only 5 km from work, there are a number of artificial lakes, de Kraaijenbergse Plassen. These lakes were excavated to provide sand and gravel for the building industry. Production has stopped just recently and the lakes make a nice recreational spot.

Thus after work we hopped in and met the boss of this patch of water!
