This week's PhotoHunt theme is letters.

If it weren't for the "letters" on the signpost you could possibly miss ABC Bay. The bay is part of Lake Eyer--a huge salt lake in the center of Australia. The lake occasionally fills with water, though it has only filled to its full capacity three or four times within the last 150 years. The lake is the lowest point on the continent and it is approximately 15 meters below sea level.  To arrive at ABC Bay travelers must travel hundreds of kilometers on remote, unsealed roads. The last 60 kilometers are extremely rugged, and only traversable by 4wd. 


  1. Hi Maya --

    Any interesting story behind the bay's name?

  2. Hi YTSL,
    I couldn't find any info on the history behind the bay's name. I should probably post a bit more about Eyer Lake--an interesting place.

  3. Hi Maya, that's a great photo and with a name like that it is so perfect for this week's theme. I found your post interesting. Just now I'm learning that one quarter of the Netherlands is below sea level. What a difference. It's so cool learning about these different environments and interesting facts.

    Thanks for sharing and hope you have a great day.

  4. Hi Kathy,
    I struggled with this week's theme and was thrilled to come across this picture.
