Deep Silence3_Lake Eyre 2011

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.
