Pictured: The leaf like shapes. <br />
<br />
These incredible shapes in a dry lake look remarkably like leaves.<br />
<br />
The patterns in the lake bed are an astonishing 100-metres-long and look just like leaves because they have the same shape and even have the same 'veins' inside.<br />
<br />
But the shapes are in fact made up from a mixture of sand and salt that are part of a huge industrial salt farm.<br />
<br />
These amazing aerial photographs were taken above Owens Lake in the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Inyo County, California, USA.<br />
<br />
The murky green surface in the salt farm is extremely saline water and the 'leaves' are man-made. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS. <br />
