We went back out to Menindee Lake in the late afternoon as the sun started to drop. The low sun resulted in the sunny side of trees and grasses glowing in the late sunshine. It was a magical scene and I'll post more photos from there over the next few days.
You may wonder how there is a drowned forest in the lake. There has always been a series of lakes there but they only had water in flood times and regularly became dry. The level was raised to store more water to provide more reliable water for down stream towns and irrigation and to support the nearby mining city of Broken Hill.
As a result old forests of eucalypts drowned in the higher water levels to create the strange, eerie scenes that I've been posting photos of.
