Interesting Photo of the Day: Lighting Storm Over the Menindee Lakes

Kinchenga National Park sits in the northwest of New South Wales, and is one of Australia’s most photogenic parks. The Menindee Lakes are shallow freshwater water bodies that connect the Darling River to a storage unit that feeds a host of nearby towns. Most take for granted the utilitarianism of the scheme, but the sparseness of the park itself makes for beautiful scenic views, like this one:

Post-production coloration is unnecessary when natural colors are this vibrant. (Click for larger size.)

This shot was captured by Australian photographer Julie Fletcher. The colors are spectacular: the water is so densely packed with silt and minerals that it turns a mossy turquoise, which makes a lovely match for the deep azure sky. The composition is sealed by scraggly branches mirroring the sharp lightning, both starkly lit against the dark sky. It’s a really impressive display of timing and scene painting.
