Sunrise at Lake Mungo. The sun rises in the east and first of all touches the dunes on the eastern side of the lunette. Then as it rises more in the sky the morning light enriches the pinnacles on the eastern side of the lunette.
The lunette is made up of sand dunes and eroded pinnacles known as The Walls of China which is on the eastern shore of the ancient lake. Lake Mungo National Park is a part of the Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area, a chain of dried out lakes that were once strung between Willandra Creek and the main channel of the Lachlan River in Outback NSW. Lake Mungo dried up around 14,000 years ago. New South Wales, Australia.
