Netherland as a country produces a total of 4.3 billion tulip bulbs each year. Half of the total harvest (2.3 billion) is grown into cut flowers, where around 1.3 billion is meant to be sold.
Salt Lake Natron – Tanzania, Kenya
This lake can be found in the Arusha Region. It´s not very deep less than 10 feet (3 m). You might be asking, how is this color possible in the lake? Lake natron has high evaporation lat, in which salt-loving microorganisms thrive using photosynthesis to make their own food. A by-product of this photosynthesis causes deeper water to turn bright red and shallow parts of the lake to take on a rusty orange color.

Drainage System – Musa Bay, Iran
This Dendritic drainage system is overflowing with arctic colors while creating a beautiful picture. The expression “dendritic” refers to the pools´resemblance to the branches of a tree, and this pattern develops when streams move across relatively flat and uniform rocks, or over a surface that resists erosion.
