Australia - January 12th, 2012

A series of lakes in the Barkly Tableland of Australia’s Northern Territory are arranged in a roughly horizontal line: (from west to east) Lake Woods, Lake Tarrabool, Corella Lake and Lake Sylvester.

The latter two are so close together that they appear as one large lake in this image. Here, the lakes appear white in color, in part from sediments and minerals, and in part from sun glint. Visible to the north of the lakes is smoke from a wildfire.
