Taken in Lake Mungo National Park(The Walls of China), (NSW)Australia

These formations are the remains of an ancient lake shoreline from a time when Australia was a lot wetter. Now it is desert landscape dominated by knee high scrub and frequently endures temperatures above 40C (104F).

Taken on a Nikon F90x, Tokina 11-16mm @16mm

    Well done David I am a big fan of Lake Mungo and very keen to get back there, your image makes me even keener

  • Thanks for the comment David. Definitely a place I’d like to go back to too. I would probably walk a bit further if I go and try to find a less photographed part as I see many of my shots were similar to other peoples.

    Hey David, yeah indeed a great shot and a fantastic place. But as you said, it’s much photographed and pays off to walk the distance.
