Strange Lakes

On a walk along a beach in Seaham, County Durham, I came across these wonderfully colourful lakes. The beach was used as a dumping ground for mining waste until the practice was banned in 1991. The dumping devastated the local ecology but the mineral deposits left behind these strange and interesting pools. Enjoy.
