The bizarre pink lakes from around the world

3 posts in this topic

They look as though someone has tipped in a load of pink dye while no one was looking.

But in fact these pink lakes are a natural phenomenon and not only draw visitors from far and wide but also provide livelihoods to local people.

From the vibrant Lake Hillier, on Middle Island in the Recherche Archipelago, in Western Australia, to a protected pink nature reserve bordering a Spanish city, these shots show how something considered unpleasant - algae - can look so beautiful.

The first one is pretty....The rest look polluted to me.

Cool links as always.

Heading up the coast from Torrevieja in Spain (one of the salt lakes is in the Link) towards and beyond Alicante there are a succession of these "Salinas" some of which have existed since the earliest Roman times. Spectacular and multiple hues of Green and some Red Salinas. They extend as far as Calpe (within the Area of Alicante) which is actually built around the salt lake.

Guadalest, a little inland from Benidorm, is an ancient Mountain top fortress town with a stunning bright blue lake from which the citizens used to draw their water. The picture below is of Guadalest, but doesnt do the colouration justice.
