The palette-like saltworks of Dalian Yanhua Group in Dalian Jinpu New Area, Liaoning province, was captured and presented earlier this month, attracting huge attention online.

The saltworks, which cover an area of more than 7 sq km, look colorful because of the difference in salinity of each salt pan, and the different brine algae (green algae, red algae) and organisms growing in it.
