Maharloo Lake (Persian: دریاچه مهارلو), also known as Pink Lake (دریاچه صورتی) is a seasonal salt lake in the highlands of the area of Shiraz, Iran. 27.0 km (16.8 mi) southeast of Shiraz, the lake salt is rich in potassium and other salts.
Rudkhane-ye-Khoshk, a seasonal river flowing through the city of Shiraz, brings most of the flood water to the lake bed during intensive precipitation events. The lake water typically evaporates by the end of summer and exposes the white lake bed. By mid-summer and due to high evaporation rates and salt concentrations, the lake water turns pinkish red as a result of the red tide within the lake.
The seasonal lake of Maharloo in Fars province is located in Iran. As the lake dries up, wastewater enters and evaporates, the surface of the lake turns red due to high water salinity and the growth of salinity-resistant algae and halophyte bacteria. Red tide, when algae densities rise above the water level, forms a layer that prevents air exchange with water and eventually depletes oxygen, producing a type of toxin that destroys the conditions for lake Artemia life.
- Рейтинг фотографов по странам и городам строится на основе 3-х лучших фотографий автора и их относительной позиции в каждой отдельной номинации. Рейтинг в номинации "Мобильная фотография" учитывается в меньшей степени для формирования рейтинга. В списке показывается одна фотография автора с лучшим рейтингом.
- В списке опубликованы только работы которые прошли 2-й этап голосования.
- The rating of photographers by countries and cities is based on the three best photos of the author and their relative position in each separate nomination. Rating in the nomination "Mobile Photography" is taken into account to a lesser extent for rating formation. The list shows one photo of the author with the best rating.
- Only those photos have been published in the list that passed the second stage of voting.
