(ECNS) -- After days of high temperatures, the Salt Lake in Yuncheng, Shanxi Province, is presenting a natural "palette" of beautiful colors.
A large number of algae and Artemia grow rapidly in high temperatures, and some algae change colors under varying densities and illumination, altering the color of the lake, experts say.
The Salt Lake is one of the three largest inland sodium sulfate lakes in the world. Because its salt content is similar to the Dead Sea in the Middle East, people can float in the water without sinking, so it is known as China's "Sea of Death.”
Artemia, also known as "brine shrimp,” is widely distributed in the salt lakes. The shrimp is rich in protein, amino acids and fat.
