Cracked

I was down at Point Lonsdale last week - a small coastal town on the western edge of Port Phillip Bay.

There are a series of semi-saline Lakes near the town called Lake Victoria.  I went there looking for lingering waders (or which there were a few) - but I also found these patterns in the dried mud of some of the lakes.

I really liked the contrast between the sandy mud and the glasswort / samphire plant.



You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday2 and I Heart Macro.  SM

  8. I like the contrast between the parched, cracked earth and the green plant determined to survive in a less that hospitable environment.
