Aerial photograph of Laguna Roja, Andes, Chile, a plateau in the unpopulated mountains of the Parinacota volcano region. The blood-red water that collects in the Laguna Roja, has a temperature of 40 to 50 degrees Celsius. The colour is due to thermophilic red algae that thrive at these temperatures.
