Welcome Everybody

Hello - Welcome to my Blog. This Blog suppliments my website to provide a diary of my experiences photographing wildlife and nature throughout Australia and abroad. I hope you find the Blog interesting and the content and images cause you to reflect on how important it is preserve natural places and their inhabitants.

For me photography of the natural world is more than just pretty settings and cuddly animal photos. It's a concern for the environment and the earth all living creatures must share.

Note that images appearing in journal posts are often not optimally processed due to time constraints.

You are welcome to comment on any post.

Departing Port Augusta for Yellow Foot Territory

Leaving Port Augusta I went north through the small towns of Quorn and Hawker. I like Quorn and on previous trips to this region have always stopped to explore the many old buildings and visit some of the art galleries. The train station in Quorn is of particular interest as it was used in the 1980's Australian movie "Gallipoli" staring the upcoming Mel Gibson.

Port Augusta is a dry town - in more than one way. Beware as the local constabulary pwho atrol the city seeking offenders!

I found this sign warning of the train interesting. The sign had been there for so long that the harsh desert sunlight had caused all the white paint to crack away.

However, this trip I have a date with a rock wallaby and I want to be on location by evening light. Whilst "sucking the miles" I observed that the terrain is a lot more greener than what it was in 2007 - no doubt there had been rain not so long ago. Green shrubs and vibrant red gums has replaced the dead vegetation I remember in 2007.
