(XINHUA) – It might look like a scene from a horror film but this is the breathtaking natural phenomenon which has met tourists at a popular French beauty spot.
The water has been transformed into a deep shade of red by high levels of salt. The shoreline and sky stand out dramatically against the red of the water.
The sinister red water stretches as far as the eye can see. The stunning scenes may look very dramatic but are actually thought to be caused by the high levels of salt within the water. The bizarre sight was captured by photographer, Sam Dobson, from Moscow in Russia.
