Australia - November 9th, 2010

Thick tan sediments from the Ord and Victoria Rivers drain into the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, a large body of water off the coast of the Northern Territory and Western Australia.

Visible to the south is Lake Argyle, Australia’s second largest artificial lake by volume. It is part of the Ord River Irrigation Scheme, and its primary inflow is the Ord River. The Bow River and many other smaller creeks also flow into the dam.
