In some places it looked like a wind-swept desert:

While in other places (close to Ayer’s Rock or Uluru) it looked almost like Mars:

Then in the middle of the nowhere we flew over a huge lake:

And finally, here we are passing over the Australian West Coast on the way to Bali:

To be exact, it's the Northwest Coast close to Derby, Australia
