The tidal mudflats of the East Kimberley region in Western Australia are vast, and they experience some of the most extreme tidal movements in the world. During the Wet (rainy) season, this area is almost entirely under water. But during the Dry Season (June-July), the excess water drains out to the ocean and as the mud dries, these incredible patterns become visible. The white, salty "branches" of the tributaries stand in stark contrast to the brown mud, drawing comparisons to veins or leaves or branches or feathers. It's Nature's artwork. [+]
