Lake Pedder 1962, The Trembling Sky

The flooding of Lake Pedder was a watershed in Australia’s environmental history. The summer of ’72 was busy with many visitors flying in to see the lake one last time before winter rains drowned the valley. The dichotomy: the sand lines speak of the people who flew there, intrigued by the lake’s uniqueness. A disturbing, impending finality.
