Weirdness of Nature - Colored lakes

Nature Weirdness, Flores Island, Indonesia, Crate Lake Kelimutu green and brown

We used the crystal clear water of the lakes, which delight the eye with water transparent image that suggests usually blue colors reflected in the azure vault of heaven.

But nature has created colorful waters because of the color of the rocks that gave its minerals due to vegetation, Wildlife Lake, or unexpected optical effects, especially specific tropical areas.

Most impressive are lakes whose water colors surprise by their red color due to small algae, producing carotene, a substance that emitted water, protect them from excess radiation.

There are many lakes in the world red, but their name is not really about color. A single lake called lake, but, paradoxically, this name is linked to a legend, not color. As we know, this lake red is not red, is in Romania.

Green Lakes comes mostly from vegetation, but often betrays the existence of copper ore in the area. It is known that copper oxide is not only green, but also very toxic.

Are also common water lakes rich in compounds of different metals, or abundant in Argine. They give out golden reflections.

Perhaps the most beautiful of the gold is Jinhu, which translates right through Golden Lake. This jewel lake is located in Taining, Fujian Province, China. It is a huge artificial lake with an area of 36 square kilometers, and the name comes from light reflections that give water a golden glow.

Taining Golden Lake is the only lake in the world that shows the brightness. There are several lakes whose water suggests silver, but none is as spectacular as the gold.
