And this time he brings yet one more superb story from Lake Natron, a lake which turns useless animals into stone.

    Though the native fauna has amassed to residing circumstances within the space, Lake Natron in northern Tanzania remains to be a really harsh place to stay. Temperatures within the lake can attain as much as 140 F (60 C), and its alkalinity is between pH 9 and pH 10.5.

    Throughout his journey there Brandt discovered useless birds calcified and washed ashore: “I couldn’t assist however {photograph} them,” he mentioned. “Nobody is aware of for sure precisely how they die, however it seems that the intense reflective nature of the lake’s floor confuses them, and like birds crashing into plate glass home windows, they crash into the lake.

    What was left for him to do was to rearrange useless birds in “residing positions” to create these eerie pictures of the residing useless.
