Lake Lefroy is a huge salt lake near the mining town of Kambalda which is south of the gold mining centre of Kalgoorlie. Because of plenty of rain the lake wasn't looking as silver as it can - the main mine, a Nickel mine, there is called Silver Lake. The underlying red soil shows through.
You can't get near the actual mine and have to be satisfied with looking out onto the lake from a hill top. From there you can see straight lines (something to do with the mines) reaching out onto the lake for quite a strange scene.
