Verona, Or Giverny?

This shot of Verona Park lake, taken on Monday, looks like a scene that Monet would have appreciated. Algae blooms seem to have sprouted on the water especially early this year; the motor boat in the photo, quaint as it looks, is actually two workers spraying something to control the green gunk, according to Anthony Pugliese of the Essex County Parks Department. The lush algae growth is probably due to the especially warm temperatures so far this summer, along with the usual culprit of fertilizer run-off. It could be worse: Unseasonably warm water at the Jersey shore has been drawing, not algae, but sharks.
