Australia - March 31st, 2011

Several salt lakes appear as white salt flats in this image of South Australia, the largest of which are Lake Gardner (left) and Lake Torrens (right). Also visible in the full image is Lake Frome, further east.

Running between Lakes Torrens and Frome are the Flinders Ranges, the largest mountain range in South Australia. The ranges appear here as a dark brown area.

South of the ranges and Lake Torrens is the Spencer Gulf, appearing green from sediments and algal growth. To the southeast of Spencer Gulf, in the full image, is Gulf St. Vincent.
