Here are some beautiful pictures of the salt flats at Lake Eyre in central Australia from this month’s National Geographic.
At first light, predawn colors are reflected and distorted by a rare rain puddle in Australia’s highly saline Lake Eyre.
In this three-hour exposure during a full moon, the two brightest stars in the sky are described as arcing lines. The cracked bed of Lake Eyre, meantime, resembles nothing so much as a lunar landscape.
