lac rose

wondering how pretty in pink i would be swimming in the lake retba. this lake in cabo verde - senegal is bright pink during the dry season and it happens because of the high concentration of salt - about 380 gr. per liter, more than in the dead sea. not many living creatures can live at this salinity, apart from this cyanobacterium called dunaliella salinawhich produces a red pigment that contribute to the color of water
