Pink Lake

untitled-010

This is a shot I took at a rather lovely Melbourne iconic place.

Under the Westgate Bridge in Melbourne is one of the last natural flood plains of the Yarra River that ultimately has fallen into a polluted mess due to diversions and the lack of water flow. The lake in the marsh lands is now pink due to its super high salinity and the pink comes from a microbiological algae bloom in the water.

Super pretty though.
