It might look like a scene from a horror film but this is the breathtaking natural phenomenon which has met tourists at a popular French beauty spot.

The stunning scenes in Camargue, southern France, may look very dramatic but are actually thought to be caused by the high levels of salt within the water.

The bizarre sight was captured by photographer, Sam Dobson, from Moscow in Russia.

There was a sea that turned red recently due to algae... They took that one as the sign already. LOL

The region is called Camargue, everyday is a fight for survival, the Rhone river changes the pattern of the region all the time and Californians are not allowed, they are send to Bugarach.
Those are beautiful shots, thanks Still.

Last time I went there was in 1975, just in time for the Gypsie queen election in Sainte Marie de la mer, the only real town there.  It was fantastic, my hippy days!  Wasn't rich then so I would dive for sea food and with other hippies we would cook it on the beach while drinking cheap wine and enjoy promiscuity.
Today all this would be illegal.  But the beauty of the place remains in the fact that no investor can built any 20 story hotel because of the soft sandy grounds.  Furthermore now the area is protected.

People in Camargue know the origins of this occurence, it's mostly the foreigners who create such a belief.  Near the town of Saintes Maries de la Mer, several Fertility religious sites have been found, including Isis and Athena.  Fertility cults have no doomsday theories.  Why do you think the Catholic church created the legend of the three Marys (Mary Magdalena, Mary Jacobe and Mary Salome) landing there?  Since for the Christians, none of those women were black so in order to justify the Black Madonna local worship (souvenir of the Fertility cult mentionned above)  they created the culte of Saint Sarah who was allegedly the servant of the three.
