This editorial was shot on location at the Pink Lake in Western Australia, near Kulnurra. What may look like some ridiculous photo-shopping, is actually the natural color of the water in this lake. It is made possible due to the presence of the carotenoid-producing algae Dunaliella salina, a source of ß-carotene, a food coloring agent and source of vitamin A. The lagoon contains the world’s largest microalgae production plant, a 250 ha series of artificial ponds used to farm Dunaliella salina (via Wikipedia). Follow him on Instagram.
