Mal rot, mal gelb, mal grün – aus diesen farbigen Teichen kommt weisses Gold

Salz ist – wenn es nicht gefärbt wird – weiss. Doch da, wo es herkommt, herrscht mannigfaltige Farbenpracht.

Auf den ersten Blick könnte man meinen, dass wir hier moderne Kunst sehen. Oder Landschaften von fremden Planeten. Doch dem ist nicht so. 

PIC BY CRIS BENTON / CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED: SAN FRANCISCO SALT PONDS) - These spectacular landscapes may look like something from another planet - but they are in fact colourful salt ponds which stretch for miles. Despite being better known for tech companies and expensive property - San Francisco in California, USA, is also home to this vibrant quilt of colour spanning the South Bay Area. From eerie green pools to gothic shades of red the surreal landscapes are caused by the organisms or micro-algae living within them. Photographer Cris Benton, 62, has spent more than 10 years studying the region and amassed a whopping quarter of a million images so far. SEE CATERS COPY  (FOTO: DUKAS/CATERSNEWS)

Es handelt sich um die Salzteiche in der Bucht von San Francisco. Sie sind mit 720 Quadratkilometern die grössten künstlich angelegten Verdunstungsbecken zur Salzgewinnung in den USA

Seit zehn Jahren studiert der 62-Jährige die Landschaft der Bucht von San Francisco und hat eine Viertelmillion Fotos davon geschossen. Ganz so viele zeigen wir Ihnen nicht, aber ein paar kommen schon noch.

Die Salzwiesengebiete beherbergen eine grosse Artenvielfalt und spielen eine wichtige Rolle im Ökosystem: Sie filtern Schmutz und Sedimente aus den Flüssen.

Und wieso sind die Teiche farbig?

Das weiss Wikipedia und erklärt, dass in den verschiedenen Salzteichen verschiedene Mikroorganismen leben. Je nach Salzgehalt – Salinität genannt – sind es andere.  

Ist die Salinität niedrig, tummeln sich dort mehrheitlich grüne Algen, der Teich nimmt ihre Farbe an. Je salziger das Wasser ist, desto wohler fühlen sich phototrophe Halophile. Die Pigmente dieser Organismen sorgen für die intensive rötliche Tönung.

Nachdem wir das geklärt hätten, können Sie nun ohne weitere Unterbrechungen die Schönheit der Natur geniessen.
