Salt Lake Glows Red in Ukraine

Salt Lake Glows Red in Ukraine

Sitting on the southern coast of the Kerch Peninsula in Crimea, the Koyashskoye Salt Lake glows from pink to deep red throughout spring and summer. The water appears red because of Dunaliella algae, which lives in very salty water and in some conditions starts to multiply rapidly, creating the warm hues.
