Take a look at these before and after pictures of a waterfall in the Canadian Rockies:
Crazy, isn’t it? Looks like it was the sight of a massacre.
But it’s actually a totally natural phenomena for water to turn blood red like that.
This happens when heavy rains wash red-colored sediments from rocks into the water.
These shots were captured by a Canadian couple who noticed that the water in Cameron Creek had turned blood red, but hadn’t yet reached the waterfall. So they waited two hours to capture this freaky metamorphosis.
While it was a rare event to witness, the Taylor Glacier in Antarctica looks like that all the time.
