this is a small lake I pass on my courier run each day. This is not a photoshop effect, The lake is pink and sometimes even purple, depending on weather conditions. The colour is attributed to high concentrations of salt tolerant algae. These shots were taken today as the sun was going down.

A very nice serial indeed. I espacially liked the first one for the barbed wire poles composition and the last one for the perfect reflections on the lake and the rich sky.
I think a panowork will definately do justice to this beautiful sight you've kindly brought us.

Bahadır.

Very interesting, I like the composition in the first one, especially with the sunbeams shining through.

yup the first one is the best, there is a pool in dorset (england) thats allways a bright vivid blue, called "the blue pool" thats because of the minerals in the water too, but pink is nice :-)

Hey aladyforty. I know exactly what you mean about a subject like this being a little boring and dull and times and you probably question yourself about what kind of shot you will end up with but I am glad that you posted this. I find this a very hard subject to capture but the last one was the winner with me being that you have some grasses at the front of the shot to break up the water. The skys are all really nice and the colours on the water are strangley asthetic. Thanks for sharing. I think that if you can pull this off you can work your camera.
