Amazing Lakes From Around The World

Jill Harness

The natural world is full of amazing colors and beauty, particularly within bodies of water. A recent post on Simon Seeks features some of the most incredible lakes from all over the world.

The lakes featured above are the Plitvice Lakes in Croatia. As you can see in the photo, the lakes are known for their cascading waterfalls and stunning colors. What's truly fascinating about these lakes though are their constant changing of colors depending on the minerals and organisms in the water. Even the angle the sunlight hits the water will change the color of the lakes.
