Friday Photo: a not-so-dry lake in Australia

Click on image for full size.

The view: Lake Eyre, South Australia. Lowest point in Australia. Usually dry, this lake fills with water that has flowed 1000 miles from Queensland, a journey that takes this rain water many months.

The airplane: Rutan Long-EZ, O-320 power.

The pilot: Jeff Brooks

The mission: 700nm trip each way from home base, hardly speaking to anyone. Heading out into the Australian outback, perfect Long-EZ trip.

The memory: Serenity.
