the color appears due to dunaliella salina, a type of halophile green micro-algae especially found in sea salt fields. this pink algae can exist in almost any kind of natural body of saltwater and is the main source of nutrition for another common resident of saltwater: a miniscule shrimp called artémias salina. dunaliella salina was named by emanoil c. teodoresco of bucharest, romania after its original discoverer, michel felix dunal; who first scientifically reported sighting the organism in saltern evaporation ponds in montpellier, france in 1838.paolo pettigiani's photo series catches mesmerizing sceneries of pink water in france
