Australia - June 1st, 2010

The red terrain of Western Australia is interrupted by whitish tan lakebeds of intermittent salt lakes. The largest of these is Lake Barlee, easily recognizable by its distinctive “M” shape.

Lake Barlee is more than 100 km wide from west to east, and about 80 km wide from north to south. Lake Barlee is usually dry, filling only once about every ten years, after which the water generally remains for under a year. Here, it does not appear to contain water.
