The stunning scenes in Camargue, southern France, may look very dramatic but are actually thought to be caused by the high levels of salt within the water.
The bizarre sight was captured by photographer, Sam Dobson, from Moscow in Russia.
The 51-year-old said he stumbled across the strange scene by chance while driving through France.
He said: 'I'd read a lot of things about Camargue but I'd never heard anything about this.
'We were just on the way to the beach when we saw the striking lake.
'It is absolutely stunning from far away but it's even better when you get closer.
'The salty crystals can be seen everywhere.
