Inside Nature : Pink



Did you know about the pink lake called Lake Retba in Senegal? It is pink due to its super high salt content that supports the growth of a red pigmented microorganism that turns the water pink. The color changes to different shades of pink throughout the year. Surprised and amazed to come across it, I decided that I am going to start up the Inside Nature series again. Nature is so fascinating! This time I'm also going to also throw in a little fashion. What do ya think?

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." - Audrey Hepburn.

I know this lake pretty well, you can even buy salt there for your everyday use! It used to be very pink a few years ago but now it's more greyish-pink! It still is a pretty sight and I don't recommend bathing in it though... It's so salted that it itches like crazy..better have a hose with normal water waiting for you when you get out!

This post is the perfect explanation why pink is my favorite color: love the artwork, love the dress and the Senegalese lake is just amazing. Thank you for sharing!

I saw the link on A Cup of Jo and had to see this pink lake. No, I didn't know about this pink lake. How wonderful. I'd love to see your 'Inside Nature series too'.

This is amazing! I had no idea this lake exists!

High-salinity lakes tend to be weird colours, or have strange characteristics. Check out the northern arm of the Great Salt Lake (which is usually reddish purple) or the pink salt lakes in Australia.
