Bloody River France

Pond that suddenly, for no apparent reason, was blood-red, may seem apocalyptic nightmare. In fact, it's not so bad — the color of a French river got such an exotic tinge due to the special salt.

This place is located in the south of France, in the Camargue, where the River Rhône flows into the sea. Changing the color of the water, researchers associated with the high concentration of salt in the form of wet marsh.

Photographer Sam Dobson took some pictures and gave their own explanations.

"Crystal covered each branch. In combination with the red water it gives the impression of something unearthly. I was totally shocked. Despite the fact that I have traveled a lot around the world, nothing like I have not seen. "

However, this is not the only lake, suddenly turned red.

Recently, there were photos of Lake Retba (Sinegal) water which has come to resemble the color of a strawberry shake, and also due to the high salt concentration.

"The color is produced by the body to Dunaliella salina — a big fan of salt. He identifies the red pigment that absorbs and converts the energy of the sun. It was he who gives water this shade of strawberry and cream "- explained Michael Dunson, an expert from the University of Bath (UK), part of extremophilic bacteria.

"Reservoirs with a high concentration of salt in the water like the Dead Sea and Retby once considered lifeless. But they are alive, and very much so. "
