Photographer Kin Chan Another photo of Shirogane blue lake in Hokkiado. I love how the trees have been planted in such direct lines.

I was expecting this to be another example of humans ruining the environment around them, but it turns out this one is natural - the color is due to natural minerals dissolved in the water. Neat!

@popcoco98 It's so hard to believe that water can be that brilliant color. @onesmile Right? It's so crazy that minerals can do that and I think @GarrusVakarian should tell us more. :)

It's aluminum hydroxide. And what's even more interesting is that the color of the lake actually changes with the weather... More details here: http://gizmodo.com/why-this-magical-lake-changes-color-with-the-weather-1464549580/1464727270/@jesusdiaz
