Australia - June 20th, 2011

The rivers of Australia’s Channel Country appear as green line across the otherwise dry, copper-colored landscape. Several salt lakes and salt pans can be observed as whitish areas near the rivers.

In the lower left corner is Lake Eyre, an ephemeral lake that fills only when the waters from extremely heavy rains comes southward over Channel Country and into the Lake Eyre Basin.
