filamentous green alga

Chaetomorpha is a genus which has unbranched filaments, and I think that, when I zoom in on your original photo, these filaments are branched. Beyond that, without microscopic examination, I would not care to speculate. Perhaps, as the observer you have noted other features which could aid ID.
