Lake Hillier in Australia: the prettiest lake in pink

We’ve seen all types of lakes: blue, mossy, muddy… so Lake Hillier completely defies our notions of what lakes should look like. The lake water in it is completely pink and looks like strawberry milk. The hue is thought by biologists to be caused by low nutrient concentrations as well as the dunaliella salina and halobacterium bacteria in it. It’s pretty.
