Says photographer Peter Elfes, "These dune islands crop up in the midst of thick salt pan. A combination of thousand-year-old sand dunes and millions of tons of salt deposited by the ancient sea bed has left the region surrounding the Lake Eyre Basin a bizarre and visually rewarding place."

Peter Elfes' national exhibition, "The Arrival", on the flooding of Lake Eyre 2009-2010 will be held at The Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney, from 27 January to 21 February 2011.
