Lake Retba in Senegal
The bizarre colour is caused by high levels of salt - with some areas containing up to 40% of the condiment.
Michael Danson, an expert in extremophile bacteria from Bath University, said: “The strawberry colour is produced by salt-loving organism Dunaliella salina.
“They produce a red pigment that absorbs and uses the energy of sunlight to create more energy, turning the water pink.
“Lakes like Retba and the Dead Sea, which have high salt concentrations, were once thought to be incompatible with life - hence the names. But they are very much alive.”

wooooow

A lone polar bear tentatively moves amongst broken ice floes in an archipelago between Norway and the North Pole. 
Photographer, Anna Henly, used a fisheye lens to make the enormous predator look diminutive on the top of the world. 
This poignant image, entitled Ice Matters was taken from a boat in Svalbard, and has won Anna the Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, in the category of The World in Our Hands.
Winning photos will be on exhibit at the Natural History Museum in London until March 3, 2013.

October 1, 1890: Yosemite Established as National Park
On this day in 1890, President Benjamin Harrison signed a bill into law creating Yosemite National Park. This law decreed that about 1,500 square miles of public land in the California Sierra Nevada would be preserved for the public trust.

Individual images taken of Venus in one year to create a full curve. The summer solstice being at the top, winter solstice at the bottom, and equinox where they lines cross.

 Submerged tree in the Green Lake. The Green Lake or Grüner See is a lake in Austria that dries out almost completely during fall, is used as a county park in the winter and is famous for the underwater park which forms during the spring due to the snow meltdown.
