Room with a View

A landscape version of a scene that I posted a while back. Taken in outback S.A in some nice afternoon light to bring out the colours of the walls contrasting against the blue outback sky


Tank tracks

Posting this for Merv as a different perspective of an earlier post. Again, taken at about 2000ft above the plains of the Marree to Lake Eyre section of the Birdsville Track. Focuses more on the cattle than the other shot. Not sure if one is better than the other but I guess will just depend on personal taste. Hope that you approve Merv….


Bugger Me

A coincidence occured last week that still has me thinking ‘what are the chances?’. I was travelling with my Dad up to Marree for a helicopter flight over lake Eyre and on the way home we stopped at a ghost town for a billy and to shoot some of the ruins. I was walking back to the car before heading back for another compostion (as per this post). This probably took an extra 3 minutes. On the way out of the ruins we come to a fork in the road where I noticed a 4wd pulling up for us to come through, it looked familiar for some reason……….and so did the driver. ‘Get f%^&%$’ was my comment to my dad ‘it’s Tony Middleton’. 1600km from home in the bloody desert, in a bloody ghost town, a familar face, bugger me. It was almost 1 year since my Dad and I met Tony stranded up at Wallaces Hut in the snow with a flat battery. Just goes to show that it is a small world. Good to see you again Tone.
