Happy Snapping – Great Aussie Outback

It doesn’t get much more Aussie than this!   Red sand, blue skies and burnt out bush.   This is a happy snap that I took using the Canon 350D while we were still driving and I think it was a pretty cool pic.   It was even shot using auto settings!   I’ve been putting together a few stiched photos but I’m having real issues stiching some of them.   Its really weird, its the third photo in a series of six that is coming out heaps lighter, I’m not sure why though, when you review it in Adobe Bride it looks exactly the same as the others.  Christian Flecther took 17yrs to become the Australian Icon that he is and I’m beginning to think its going to take me 17yrs just to get this photo right. 😉

RIP – Canning Stock Route -2008

I’m back in civilisation!   The Canning Stock Route was an awesome trip and a great experience, is it a photographers delight?   I’m not sure that it is.   The track runs through some very sparse and vast tracts of land and I think that is a real photography issue, there really isn’t that much to photograph.   Having said that, it was a life experience and as the above photo shows, if you don’t take it seriously you are in real trouble.    There was stacks of car and trailer carnage out there.   The real highlight of the trip for me was our trip to Rundell River National Park on our way out of the Canning Stock Route, I’ll put some photos up shortly from the park. 

Its good to be back!
