Clouds create wispy lines above the tan sediments spilling off the shores of Australia. Further inland, the dark blue Lake Argyle, Australia’s second largest artificial lake by volume, can be seen in the reddish brown terrain.

The lake is located in Western Australia on the Kimberley Plateau, about eighty kilometres inland from the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, close to the border with the Northern Territory.

Lake Argyle is part of the Ord River Irrigation Scheme. Its primary inflow is the Ord River, while the Bow River and many other smaller creeks also flow into the dam.
