Australia - September 18th, 2011

The greenish sediments visible in the upper right corner of this image are spilling from the Fitzroy River and out of King Sound.

Moving southwestward further down the shore, one comes to a white stretch of coastline. These are the white sands of Eighty Mile Beach.

Continuing southwestward, the large peninsula jutting out of the coast of Western Australia is North West Cape. The Cape Range runs down the spine of the peninsula and Ningaloo Reef runs along the western edge.
