This lake in north Chile looks like a massive blood bath

The Laguna Roja is a blood-red lake that sits on a plateau amidst the mountains of the Parinacota volcano region in northern Chile. At 40-50˚C, the warm water sustains the thermophilic red algae population that gives it its striking hue. Bernhard Edmaier captured a stunning aerial image of the lake for his recent book, EarthArt: Colours of the Earth. It’s amazing.
