Sea Lake is a small village in the Mallee Country in the North West of Victoria. It gains its name from the salt lake next to it.
It was a great opportunity to take my faithful old mighty Moto Guzzi Breva 1100 for a run.
Lake Tyrrell whose name is derived from the aboriginal word Deril which means open to the sky. It is Victoria’s largest salt lake that is believed to be formed 120,000 years ago.
The lake is a a light pink colour.
The thin film of water over the lake provides a mirror like finish and perfect reflections.
The outback sunset was just an amazing sight reflected on the lake.
The Lake is also a great place for star gazing and practising astronomy watching the endless sky of the outback.
Unfortunately the building cloud cover that added drama to the sunset made star shots not possible. But what a view this beautiful lake provided.

Awesome set of photos. I love the colours
Thanks, yes the colours were amazing for sure.
Superb sunset shots over the lake. I wonder whether on a clear night the Milky Way is reflected?
My understanding is the milky way and the whole night sky is reflected on a clear night. The area is supposed to be great for stars due to the wide uninterrupted horizons. I’ll have to go back!
You will! Do you know the camera or settings to capture it? If not I can send you a PDF.
Please do send the pdf. I need all the help.i can get!
Here is a link to a post I did a number of years ago with a checklist for your camera settings. You will need a tripod for Astro photography.
Thanks Chris appreciated. I upgraded my camera recently to an Olypus Em1 mkiii and am still finding my way around all the settings. Must admit I’m not very diligent at doing it though. Better at experiential learning lol
Ooh, nice one!
Wade says RTFM 😑!
Yes I’ve tried that. But it’s a challenge to read at night by starlight lol
Great little cheat sheet and I do love that pic of the split point light house. It’s just great!
