242 – Spotted Lake Mandala

Mother Nature proves it yet again in today’s MotD that, like me, she likes to create mandalas…it’s in her nature. In this case it’s Spotted Lake near Osoyoos in British Columbia, Canada as photographed by professional photographer pektusin. Even the spelling of the city has mandalas in it (4 “o”s).

From When On Earth‘s site about this lake it states:

This strange occurrence is accounted for by the Spotted Lake’s high mineral composition, including magnesium sulfate, calcium and sodium sulphates. Depending on the concentration of certain minerals left behind in each pool, the spots would assume white, light yellow, green or blue color. The areas where magnesium sulfate crystallizes and hardens in the summer heat forms natural white “walkways” around and between the spots.

I love how some of the spots are perfectly round and others are variations on the round shape. And if you look close enough you can even spot some hearts.

This inspires me to pay more attention to other instances of Mother Nature’s love of mandalas.

Happy Coloring!
