The horrendous Lake Natron, in northern Tanzania, is a salt lake, which means water streams in, yet doesn't stream out, so it just escapes by evaporation. Over the long run, as water evaporates, it abandons a high concentration of salt and different minerals, as at the Dead Sea and Utah's Great Salt Lake.
In contrast to different lakes, Lake Natron is incredibly soluble because of high 'natron' in the water. The water's pH has been estimated as high as 10.5, close to as high as alkali. "It's high to such an extent that it would peel the ink off my Kodak film boxes inside a couple of moments," Photographer Brandt says
Nobody knows for certain precisely how to bite the dust, yet apparently the limit intelligent nature of the lake's surface befuddles the creatures, making them collide with the lake. The soda and salt makes the animals calcify,perfectly preserved, as they dry.
Lake Natron is unwelcoming to life.Blood-red from the microscopic organisms that live in it, the salt lake is steaming hot, with temperatures that can reach up to 140°F, as per the New Scientist.
Brandt estimates that the profoundly intelligent, synthetic thick waters acts like a glass entryway, tricking birds into believing they're flying through void space, in the relatively recent past, a helicopter pilot sadly fell casualty, as his airplane smashed and was quickly consumed by the lake's waters
Simply coming into contact with the water was perilous. "It's acidic to such an extent that regardless of whether you have the smallest cut, it's agonizing," Brandt says. "No one could at any point swim in this, it'd be finished frenzy."
