Caption: Salt lake. Circular deposits in Spotted Lake, British Columbia, Canada. A salt lake contains water of high salinity, due to the mineral content of the underlying geology, in this case Epsom Salts (magnesium sulphate). During the summer months, evaporation of lake water is high and salts dissolved in the water are precipitated out. This leaves characteristic circular formations, which give the area its name.
