Four incredible and dedicated photographers, an adventurous off-road 4WD trip and two charter plane rides above Lake Eyre delivers stunning results.

When you take to the air, [Lake Eyre's] true complexity, variety and immensity is breathtakingly revealed.Salt deposits, eroded channels and inlets, layers of sediment and algal blooms provide endlessly subtle variations of texture, lines, pattern and colour. The Light Collective, 2016
