Marico Eye or Marico Oog in Afrikaans, is a tiny fountain coming out from the bowels of the earth in the middle of farming land close to the town of Lichtenburg in South Africa. It's characterised by absolutely pristine fresh water, which in a calm sunny day gives away some stunning underwater images. African water lilies with their roots few meters deep only add to the perfect picture. It is a home to a very special endemic small fish, that you can find only here.
This short has been mostly filmed by Riaan van der Merwe and Jenna Ferreira who visited the place when I was in Europe. I've only added few more dry shots, once I went there myself, then put the whole thing together on the editing table.
