Deep Silence3_Lake Eyre 2011

    Newer Older

    I walked 2km on the salt flat of Lake Eyre to reach the water. It seemed a long way and as if my goal was an elusive Mirage. But water there is and as the sun lowered the sense of disorientation increased and sky and earth became one and the same in all but one direction...from where I'd come. I stood shin deep in ultra salty very cold water and deliciously silky mud for three hours and watched magic happen.

    look to see, Lost lens cap, and 22 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Never could do what you did. But wow it was worth it!!!! Like the earth was on fire and can understand about the sense of disorientation.
