Thanks a lot for stopping by!
Volker

Technical: Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM, tripod, PP in PS 5.1

Location and time: Lake Hart, South Australia, during sunset (April 2012)
Lake Hart is a salt lake in the very heart of South Australia situated on the Stuart Highway (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stuart_Highway, accessed 16.02.13). You're viewing remnants of a pretty old jetty (I assume). Lake Hart is a popular stop over for travellers going Adelaide to Darwin. Its a dry lake, mostly salt flats and is surrounded by bright red desert and dunes.

Hey Volker,

That's a very interesting location, nice work here with it. So it would appear that if that was a jetty there, that this lake was not always dry? When and why did it dry up?

Wonderful image. I find myself just staring off following the remnants of the old jetty (or whatever it is)!

Beautiful colors. Very dramatic. Did you light the foreground?

Cordial thanks, Dustin, Chris, Jim, Sunny, Treebeard, David and Dave!
Jim, I simply don't know when this jetty must have been in operation - it's difficult to find information on that particular issue on the Web. You might check out
http://people.rses.anu.edu.au/dedeckker_p/pubs/120.pdf for general information on how those salt lakes in the center of Australia have formed.
Note that just a few meters away the railway running from Adelaide to Darwin passes:

Maybe the jetty was used to load / ship salt decades or even more than a century ago.
Dave, I did not (here). However, a bit later (when there was not so much light any longer), I did.
