Wonderful winter stuff

While there was no significant surface water in the lake when these photos were taken in July 2009, lots of great views were ours as the fogs, mists and sunrises started our days on its unusual dry and black base this winter.(the fairy grass seeds had settled and surface sand (lighter colour) dried enough to blow down into the cracks leaving the dark rich organic calcareous clays exposed.
For those of you who never got out there these deeply shrunken clays formed soft and precariuos pillars ( that were very shaky to walk on ( see next posting for more detail)
