Nature is already abundant with gorgeous colors, but sometimes, with help from natural pigments, an ordinary-looking landscape will turn into a stunning location that will make you think you’ve been warped to a fairy tale world.
We have seen the different colors of leaves and flower and remarkable natural lights that add to the gorgeousness of a landscape. But bacteria can also help contribute to the unique hues of bodies of water.
Here are 20 images to show you the beauty of nature in vivid colors.
#1. Zhangye Danxia, China
Can you imagine nature has this to offer? This beautiful rainbow mountains are located in the province of Gansu. Thanks to red sandstone and mineral deposits, this wonderful site has become a popular tourist attraction.
#2. Fly Geyser, Nevada, US
The geyser’s formation is a result of a well drilling accident back in the 1960’s. The well may have somewhat been left improperly capped, which then made dissolved minerals to rise and contribute to the growing formation of what people now see. But we need to thank the thermophilic algae, which contribute to the beauty of the mound.

You may think that this rainbow hot spring is enhanced with photo editing apps, but science actually has played a big role in giving its beautiful colors. There are different organisms found in the hot spring, but mostly it contains a type of cyanobacteria called Synechococcus, according to the Smithsonian.

Corals and seashell fragments give this lovely Italian beach its pink-colored sands. It’s like being in a cotton-candy shore—only it doesn’t feel fluffy.

Call it photoshopped, but this rainbow river actually exists. This central Colombian beauty is mostly red in color due to the Themacarenia clavigera plant found in the river. But thanks to black rocks, blue water, yellow sand and green algae this river produces a dramatic rainbow effect.

This harsh environment is noted for its bright green and yellow colors due to deposits of salt and sulphur.

#10. Seven Coloured Earths, Mauritius
This colorful formation is found in the Chamarel plain of Mauritius. It is believed that the different colors observed in the formation are caused by molten volcanic rock cooling down at various rates.
