Lake Hillier

Oftentimes on this blog I write about water clarification and getting the clearest water possible (usually with the help of an experienced professional) but Lake Hillier in Australia is such an amazing hue of pink I would never suggest this.

Found on Middle Island, this huge lake is bubble gum pink! This lake is unique because people aren’t quite sure how Hillier Lake got its shocking pink color. Much speculation surrounds organisms found in the lake that might produce a pink dye called Dunaliella salina and Halobacteria. 

The amazing thing about this lake is that the color is permanent, even if you take a sample.
