A Lake That Turns Animals To Stone. Hmm...

Lake Natron in Tanzania, East Africa, has water that kills any animal that's been immersed in it, turning it into stone. No voodoo or anything, just tons of toxic volcanic ash from the Great Rift valley nearby. Anyway, photographer Nick Brandt came across the calcified, perfectly preserved carcasses of birds and small animals that have fallen victim to the lake and now has an amazing photography book all about it called Across the Ravaged Land. How amazing?
