They're salt ponds.  
Three microorganisms, Synechococcus, Halobacteria, and Dunaliella, influence the color of salt ponds.
About midway through the pond system, the increased salinity promotes huge populations of tiny brine shrimp, which  clarify the brine and darken it. The saltiest brine, or pickle, appears deep red, because Halobacteria take over and the hypersaline brine triggers a red pigment to form in the Dunaliella’s protoplasm.
I likes landscape photography, but my lens has a tendency to find itself pointed at more Oceanscape type scenes..

The El nino assisted North Pacific has been generating practically Non stop westerly groundswells for 6 weeks now.

We need the rain, but most groundswell generating Storms are being deflected northward from SoCal, leaving light winds and unmolested clean groundswell.
