Flooded Norman River

Queensland, Australia, has been having serious troubles with flooding over the last few months.

Here, a great deal of sediments are visible in the Gulf of Carpentaria, off the western coast of Queensland, near the base of the Cape York Peninsula. The mouth of the Norman River, which has experienced particularly high floodwaters, is to the right.

The photo shows the Norman River, upstream from Normanton, in flood this year. The normal watercourse can be identified by the two parallel rows of  treetops, almost completely submerged in the high waters.
