Nicole Kearsch's curator insight, December 17, 2014 1:48 AM

Now this is bizarre.  A pink lake and no one is really sure as to why it is pink.  It is not on the top of my list of places to go swimming, that is for sure.  Although scientists don't seem too concerned about the safety of the lake for people but are curious as to what is causing the lake to be pink.  Thoughts on algea and bacteria levels or the amount of salt are included in the potential reasoning for the pink color.  Even on google earth you can see that the lake is in fact pink.  Even when scientists come to a conclusion as to what is causing the pink colored lake, as far as it isn't causing any environmental issues, I think that the lake should be left pink as a type of wonder of the world attraction for people to see.

Lena Minassian's curator insight, May 7, 2015 11:54 AM

This article caught my eye because I have never seen a pink lake before. This lake is on Middle Island in Western Australia. The lake is 600 meters wide but the reasoning behind the color of it is still yet to be determined. White salt rims the lake and the color may be caused from a low nutrient concentration and even just bacteria. The pictures of this lake are beautiful and there is not anything like it. 

Douglas Vance's curator insight, April 23, 1:17 PM
As seen in many sea salt production facilities, the brine can often turn a pink color due to the high salinity and presence of certain bacteria. While no single cause can b attributed to this lake's pink hue, its stunning color has captivated all who have come across it.

Focus On Travel Web Design

Ed Phelan's insight:

As it is coming up to Christmas many of us will be looking to go away whether that be a romantic getaway or a family holiday. With the growth of the internet it is quite likely that we will use a website to book our holidays rather than go into the traditional travel agents on the high street.  Nowadays many of the big of travel agents will have websites, so what it is about these sites that separate them from the rest of the competition. In this article I will talk about how travel sites can design the pages on their website in order to increase bookings.
