Norseman is the first town that you come to after crossing the Nullarbor Plain from eastern Australia. It is also the first of the mining towns but of most interest are the large salt water lakes that just about surround the town. Due to recent rain their was plenty of water in the main lake (Lake Cowen) which runs along the eastern side of town.
A road crosses the lake on a causeway to where this photo was taken with salt water and salt flats below red cliffs.
The plants in the fore ground are very salt tolerant with grey foliage and dark red flowers - they make a colourful display beside the water. They are a type of salt bush.
