This is how horror movies start.

One day you wake up and the lake, which is normally a nice blue, is suddenly blood red. Terrifying stuff, to say the least. But don’t get out your exorcism kit just yet, not is all as bad as it looks.

Tuz Golu, a saline lake (one of the biggest in the world) that sits outside Aksaray in central Turkey, is over 1500 square kilometres and is the second-largest lake in the country.

In an event that happens at least once a year during this season, Tuz Golu has an algae party. An exceptionally big bloom of Dunaliella salinas algae — which turns the water a deep red — has settled in the water this year, and we’re lucky enough to be able to see the natural phenomenon in these stunning images.
