Thus at last the Teleri were overcome, and a great part of their mariners that dwelt in Alqualondë were wickedly slain…. And Olwë called upon Ossë, but he came not, for it was not permitted by the Valar that the flight of the Noldor should be hindered by force. But Uinen wept for the mariners of the Teleri; and the sea rose in wrath against the slayers, so that many of the ships were wrecked and those in them drowned. Of the Kinslaying at Alqualondë more is told in that lament which is named Noldolantë, the Fall of the Noldor, that Maglor made ere he was lost.
– The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Chapter IX Of the Flight of the Noldor

The tints of red just evokes the aftermath of the Kinslaying for me.
