Clear water and colorful rocks (top) contrast with periphyton covered rocks ( bottom), both found in the near-shore of Lake Superior and may indicate differences in water quality. Bubbles in the bottom image are due to the high photosynthetic activity. Most people experience the North Shore of Lake Superior .
