Australia – March 9th, 2013

The often dry Lake Mackay, the largest of hundreds of ephemeral salt lakes scattered throughout Western Australia and the Northern Territory, shows the presence of water in this image, taken after Tropical Cyclone Rusty (17S) drenched the region. The popcorn clouds dotting the skies around the lake are also an indication of rapid plant growth after rainfall in an arid area.
