We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

Your work day is chugging along – don’t you deserve a break now?! We think so (if that means anything), so when you take that next break, check out the 30-centimeter natural color image collected by WorldView-3 on May 1, 2015 over Lake Hillier in southwestern Australia. Don’t adjust your monitor as the pink color is no mistake! This is one of the world’s natural mysteries as no one knows what causes its pink color. Some believe the color is caused by a suspended algae called Dunaliella salina, and others by the presence of bacteria in the lake’s salt crusts. Whatever is the cause, this is one cool looking lake; and as an added bonus, the pink color remains even when the water is bottled!

Have a great rest of your workday! J
