Australia - March 13th, 2009

Waters from heavy rains in northern Queensland, Australia, flow down into Eyre Creek (left) and the Diamantina River (right) in the southwestern part of the state, near the South Australia border.

These rivers are part of Queensland’s Channel Country, ancient flood plains crossed by rivers that flow intermittently through this arid region. Here, the riverbeds are full of water that is brown with sediments. The riverbanks are green from plant life.
