Weird Pink Lake

There is a strange, yet beautiful lake just outside of Dakar.  Lake Retba has a unique quality that makes the lake appear pink depending on the time of day and wind conditions.  Everything floats in the lake because if its high salinity.  When the wind picks up a cyanobacteria is activated and the lake produces more pigment.  Feldspar deposits in the lake reflect sunlight and give the lake the unique pink hue.
