Breathtaking images illustrate the beautiful rainbow-colored waters of an Australian lagoon that glows pink, orange and blue.

Paula Zavalia, 29, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, took the footage of the Instagram-worthy waters earlier this month during a visit to the Hutt Lagoon, in the mid-west of Western Australia.

The beautiful lagoon – separated from the Indian Ocean by a narrow strip of sand – contains & # 39; the world's largest microalgae production plant that creates its infamous pink hue.

& # 39; I wanted to go to that place for a very long time – the water there has shades of amazing colors, mostly pink and orange, & Mrs. Zavalia said.

& # 39; That's because the algae with special properties grow there. & # 39;

The seasoned visual artist captured the complexion of the lagoon in a way that emphasized the contrasting colors and showed how they fused effortlessly together.

In one image the lagoon reflects a sunset with a hue of pink, red and orange that gives a look that looks remarkably similar to when the sun falls below the horizon.

The iconic coloring of Hutt Lagoon comes from the presence of the carotein-producing algae, which is a source of beta-carotene; a food color and an excellent source of vitamin A.

Dunaliella salina is often used in cosmetics and nutritional supplements.

Hutt Lagoon (photo) also contains & # 39; the world's largest microalgae production plant and a commercial range of brine shrimp, which is used as specialty feed by shrimp and fish farmers.

The picturesque waters were previously captured on camera by a kite surfer.

Video footage shows a woman skilfully sliding over the shallow water against the pink background of the Hutt lagoon.

However, she is careful to avoid the giant salt crystals that cover the ground.

& # 39; It was very difficult to take pictures of kite surfing because the ground is very sharp everywhere with giant salt crystals, & # 39; the video is subtitled.
