A gumboot sits atop a fencepost on the site of the old town of Adaminaby as it re-emerges out of Lake Eucumbene, located 150 km (93 miles) south of the Australian capital Canberra June 5, 2007. Drowned 50 years ago for progress and the promise of water without limit, the town known as Old Adaminaby is having an odd renaissance as a looters' heaven and centrepiece of Australia's desiccating climate. As the town re-surfaces from the vanishing waters of one of the country's largest man-made lakes, souvenir hunters have arrived for the relics laid bare by the worst drought on record.

Farmer John Ive looks at property affected by salinity at Dicks Creek, located 35 kilometres (22 miles) northwest of Canberra, June 4, 2007. Salination, an occurrence when ground water rising to the surface brings along with it natural salts present in the soil, is turning once productive farmland into lifeless dirt tracts and is threatening the country's A$30 billion (US$22 billion) agricultural export industry, one of the biggest in the world. The federal government has rated the problem as one of the biggest environmental challenges facing the country, and has backed a A$1.4 billion (US$1 billion) national action plan to fight it.

Farmer John Ive inspects a dam on his property at Dicks Creek, located 35 kilometres (22 miles) northwest of Canberra, that has been effected by blue-green algae, also known also as Cyanobacteria, June 4, 2007. Potentially lethal to all animals, the algae thrives on a combination of nutrients, light, warmth and calm conditions, which are all factors common to lakes, reservoirs and farm dams. Many inland water ecosystems in Australia face an enormous threat from the presence of the blue-green algae. As the surface scum begins to die and decompose, the toxins are released and the oxygen supplies on which vegetation, fish and other water life depend, are depleted.
