Caption: Salt flat. This expanse of salt lies adjacent to Lake Assal, a crater lake in Djibouti, eastern Africa. It was once part of the lake, but the extreme temperatures and high winds of the region caused the water to evaporate, leaving salt deposits. The salt pan is mined and is a valuable source of income.
