Saltwater Lake

This man made ‘pink’ lake might not actually be pink as you’re looking at it now, but come summer, it’s likely to be a different story.  High salt content, increased temperatures, sunlight and low rainfall all combine to trigger this natural phenomenon.


What is it that grows in the salt crust at the bottom of the lake that causes it to turn a spectacular ‘deep, dark pink’ as described by Phil Pegler from Parks Victoria in his UK Daily Mail interview?
