Pink Lake near Kalbarri, Western Australia

Hutt Lagoon is a salt lake with a pink hue due to the presence of the carotenoid producing algae, Dunaliella salina, which is a source of beta-carotene, used as a food-colouring agent and source of Vit A. in cosmetics and supplements.
The lagoon contains the worlds largest microalgae production plant.
I think the blue line is a man-made barrier.
