Tanzanian lake turns animals into frozen statues

Photographer Nick Brandt took photos of the birds that die in the deadly Lake Natron in northern Tanzania. The alkalinity levels are so high in the lake it causes the animals to turn into statues, preserving them forever. However, it’s not known why or how these animals have died. Although it’s sad, it’s a look into a world most haven’t seen before.
