Kristina Makeeva (previously featured) is a world-famous Russian photographer known for her magical and ethereal portraits and landscape photography. At this time, she captured absolutely stunning aerial pictures of Hutt Lagoon, an exuberant pink lagoon in Western Australia.
Hutt Lagoon is considered to be a salt lake with a red or pink hue 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-hectare series of artificial ponds used to farm Dunaliella salina. I dreamed about the pink lake for a long time, and it turned out to be better than in my dreams. Pools with different shades of red, pink, and sometimes yellow and blue. Pink salt on the shore, which glitters like snow – it all looks like abstractionist paintings in reality. Nature and its colors, in this case, did the magic.Kristina Makeeva
