Anyway, as a result of visiting Wanderlust and reading about Kristin's affinity with Australia - in particular, the outback I thought this week would be a good chance to show some images from Central Australia :)
|On the road, Central Australia|
These photographs were taken on a trip to Central Australia in the mid 1990's. On a previous solo trip in the late 1980's, I have to admit I climbed the rock, which was an incredible experience. The second trip was with my partner at the time and instead of climbing Uluru we walked around the base. This was a truly amazing experience, spiritual almost in its silence, beauty and magnitude. It took a number of hours, we didn't rush - couldn't really with that heat and we didn't encounter another soul until almost at the very end.
On that second trip we also visited Kings Canyon, Edith Falls, Katherine Gorge and Hermannsburg among other places.
Originally taken with my Nikon SLR, they are all scanned photographs. A great deal of care and attention to detail has been taken to get the highest quality outcome possible...some are a little grainy, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but I feel for the most part they work OK.
More of these images can be found over at my flickr photostream :)
