On the internet are gaining popularity photographs of Nick Brandt that show an eerie lake in Africa that turns animals into stone. Lake Natron in northern Tanzania is a dead trap for birds and bats that touch the surface of the water.
The temperature can reach up to 140 °F, and the water is so salty that living beings are dying from it. Brandt found these creatures on the shore of the lake, set them in natural positions and photographed them.
