Lake Hart in South Australia is an enormous Salt-Flat that is usually dry all year round. On the occasion of heavy rains in Queensland, the water slowly moves through the massive river, stream and underground water-flow system that crosses much of central Australia, and ends up slowly filling this lake, and others like it.
The line you see is the water slowly filling the lake, kilometres across, and centimetre by centimetre. Completely silently save for an unnerving crackling as the water fills in the gaps in the salt.
