Lake George {{EXPLORED}}

Highest Position on Explore #212

 

A shot I took on a storm chase last summer and finally got around to processing it...

 

This is Lake George, an ancient lake, believed to be more than a million years old.

 

Originally, small streams drained its catchment into the Yass River, but then the Lake George Escarpment rose due to major crustal movement along a strong fault line, blocking this drainage and forming the lake. Lake George has in previous Ice Ages been much larger and deeper.

 

Currently, the lake is dry and has been for many years... I cant imagine what it would look like full of water and life...
