  1. Brad,

    Great to see new puzzles coming up. I’m still 3 weeks away from being back at my home computer, so I can’t do any searching right now.

    I lieu of searching, I’ll offer the following observations for other solvers:

    1) Brad has both the newest version of Google Earth, and also a new wide screen monitor. Very nice.

    2) Comparing old and new pics, I would guess that the area may be tidal, or it may be an inland area that has been subject to evaporation with limited/no source of replenishment.

    3) The shadow on the new pic suggest an eastern sun, but I can’t determine if it’s NE or SE, so the hemisphere is still indeterminate.

    4) Arid or semi-arid.

    No guarantee that my observations are correct, but that’s my first take.

    Good luck, all.


  2. There are dozens of these lakes in Western Australia, though I wasn’t able to locate an exact match in scouring for it for over an hour.
