The Art of Algae 

2015 Wildlife Photographer of the Year 

This photo was taken from the air over Bahia de Cadiz natural park. With an increase in temperature the salinity changes and the wetlands are transformed.  Green seaweed, white salt deposits and brown and orange sediments coloured by sulphurous bacteria and iron oxide give the landscape the look of an abstract painting.
