Lake Ayre, Australia - Murray Fredericks

Lake Ayre, Australia - Murray Fredericks

According to the photographer:

Lake Eyre might be the bleakest, most featureless place on Earth—a flat, arid salt sink in Australia with only the horizon to define its 3,700 square miles.

Pilots who fly over Lake Eyre had told me about a red hue that sometimes appears when the bed dries. I later learned that it's caused by an organism that lives only in supersaline environments.
