Colours seem very accurate, but the water colour looks wrong?

Could this be a glacier lake or something?

Fantastic effect the water has had in terms of carving the underlying limestone (?).

I did boost the contrast a bit in this picture, but I don't think it changed the water colour from what it was in reality.

The water is not from a glacier, but it does have a similar milky colour as a glacial stream. I guess the colour is due to the dissolved calcite refracting the sunlight - as is the case in the nearby Soca River.

This was a very short gorge (only 40 m), but quite pretty in terms of the carving of the limestone.

Thanks for confirming my guess about the limestone.

Also for not taking my comment as criticism!
