17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Red Snow

We arrive at Laguna Colorada in the middle of a snowstorm, the lagoon is known for its reddish pink tones, caused by the presence of algae and plankton. Far away the reddish tones of the pond were reflected in the sky, carried by the snowstorm that fell over the pond, and in a moment we could see the Black Volcano in the background, framed by a pink snowstorm!
