Located in northern China Shanxi province, this dreamy landscape, Xiechi Lake, is consider by some to be China’s dead sea. This 500 million years old saline lake, on which a human could easily float, randomly changes colour as a result of extreme heat. It is the multiplication of bacteria, or algal bloom, that "paints" the lake with these peculiar colours. Tints vary along magenta, green and yellow gradients, giving a Rothko-like appearance to the scenery, and making it our peculiar image of the week. Via NatGeo.
