We are used to seeing sparkling blue, green and crystal water, but nature can also throw curved balls. Located on the west coast of Australia is a candy-colored body of water called the Hutt Lagoon. A saltwater lake that brings out the pink color of Dunaliella salina, an alga that produces carotenoids, a food colorant, and a source of vitamin A. Russian photographer Christina Makeba, known for her fairytale fashion photography, sought this special sight. She captured the rosy beauty of pastel colors in her new series.

“I’ve dreamed of a pink lake for a long time and found it to be better than my dream,” Makeeva tells My Modern Met. “A pool of different shades of red, pink, and sometimes yellow and blue. The pink salt of the shore that shimmers like snow-it looks like an abstract painting. In this case, nature and its colors are magical. Some of her paintings feature models that give range to the size of this lake. It contains pink, red, blue and yellow sections and appears to disappear to the horizon. A piece of sand is split and surrounds a parcel of water.

Makeeva emphasizes the surrealism of the lake’s colors and ensures that the colored waters fill the entire composition. In this way, viewers can immerse themselves in the gorgeous shades and atmosphere of Hutt Lagoon. In fact, these images can be interpreted as a fantasy environment or even an avant-garde painting, without knowing what the subject is. However, Makeeva does include overhead shots of the landscapes that make up the lake and all of its incredible qualities associated with the beach.
