That is an awesome shot! Where was this taken? How deep was the water?

To 66WINN - anyone can take a photo like this, as these are "tame" fish, hand fed by the tourists who take the tour at Castle in the Clouds. They are in a small man-made pond called Shannon Pond, which is quite shallow and is fed in part by the same spring that produces the Castle Springs bottled water, which probably helps explain why it is so clear. Obviously no fishing is allowed, as it would be most unsportsmanlike to catch fish who have all their lives been taught to associate humans with beneficent souls who provide them with great quantities of easy food, which the tourists buy from special food dispensers placed on a dock built expressly for the purpose of feeding the fish.
