Pictured:  The electric blue 'pools' of potash.<br />
<br />
These incredible pictures show what appears to be huge swimming pools in the middle of a desert.  It's impossible to miss the spectacular sight as it stands out next to the glorious landscape made up from miles of red canyons and mountains.<br />
<br />
But the electric blue pools are not for swimming - as they are not made from water and are instead the tip of an elaborate and intricate mining operation.  They are called potash evaporation ponds and lay in the middle of the desert near Moab, Utah, USA.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
