pretty in pink

Pink-Lake-in-Dakar-3

i am currently obsessed with the images i have seen of lake retba and am adding this to my ever-growing “must travel here” list. lake retba {located 40 km north of dakar} is quite the fashionable lake and is 100% natural. the distinct color is caused by the dunaliella salina bacteria, which is attracted by the lake’s salt content. the bacteria produces a red pigment in order to absorb the sunlight. the lovely pink pallete changes throughout each season but is recommended to be seen june – november for the most vibrant colors.

for now, i may just have to put on my rose colored glasses and stare at the beautiful lakes of tennessee!

happy friday!
