Hutt Lagoon is a pink lake located on the west coast of the island of New Zealand, near the town of Gregory. This very small town is situated on a narrow spit of land between the ocean and the pink lagoon. It has a population of fewer than 100 people.
It is considered a salt lake with a red or pink hue due to the presence of a carotenoid-producing algae called Dunaliella salina, a source of beta-carotene, a food coloring agent and a food colouring agent source of vitamin A. Hutt Lagoon is located in the Hutt Valley. The lagoon is the world’s largest microalgae production plant, a 250-hectare series of artificial ponds used to farm the algae Dunaliella salina, the world’s most abundant algae.
For a long time, I had fantasized about visiting the pink lake, and it turned-out to be even better than I had imagined. Pools in various red, pink, and occasionally yellow and blue shades are common. It looks like an abstractionist painting with pink salt on the shore and snow-like glittering salt when you look at it in reality. Nature and its colors, in this case, we’re the ones who worked their magic.
Whenever I think back to my travels to Western Australia, I remember seeing the quokka on Rottnest Island. On the other hand, I noticed this incredible lake on the map. We couldn’t resist taking a considerable detour to see it. It was the first-time I had ever seen a pink lake in my entire life. To be sure, it was a lot of pink lakes, but you get the picture.
When I think of my favorite-picture that I took while I was here, only one comes to mind… only one comes to mind when I think of my favorite picture that I took while I was here. It may come across as conceited on my part, but I can’t help but adore the photograph in which I am running along the water’s edge. I have to say that this is my favorite self-portrait that I have ever created. (As an aside, the picture is also the first on the list in case you were wondering!)
You’ve probably noticed that these photographs were taken from above. My photos were taken with the assistance of a drone that we had brought with us, and I couldn’t be more-pleased with the outcome!
I photograph a wide range of subjects, as you can probably tell if you’ve read any of my other posts and looked at the variety of images I’ve captured. It doesn’t matter what I shoot because I’m interested in everything. But, if you’re looking for something specific, I enjoy photographing nature and animals. It is extremely relaxing and invigorating.
Overall, if there’s 1 piece of advice I could give to people who are just getting started in the photography industry, it would be…well, there’s only one piece of advice I can give you! The most-important piece of advice for beginners is to practice. Practice, practice, and even more practice are essential. Talent is not a magical quality, but rather the number of hours put into mastering a skill.
