The sky in the Outback is always a rich deep blue and the sunsets are just as stunning – The black silhouettes of the harsh outback lands and a painterly mirage of clouds backlit by the falling Sun. There was a slight breeze while I was photographing the sunset and I had in mind that I would want to later lift the vibrant colours of the clouds in Camera Raw with an HDR effect, so instead of the three+ exposures I opted for raw. The screenshot below shows my adjustments in Camera Raw!

Marysville was buzzing yesterday lunchtime with all the day-trippers buying lunch at the famous Marysville Bakery! This photograph was taken lying down looking up, in between the tall two Gum Trees. Using Camera Raw in Photoshop I was able to uncover some of the detail in the shadows, especially right in the foreground.

The Red Centre – Outback, Northern Territory, Australia

At the end of last month I flew to Alice Springs and explored the surroundings of Central Australia over an extended weekend. It was an unbelievable trip and the experience of almost pure Outback was so unfamiliar/unique to me that I found it was amazing how Australia offers such a dynamic range of landscapes and culture from cities to the vast outback. I documented my trip visually as you’ll see as you scroll down – although some of these images are very revealing of Central Australia it is still nothing compared to being there, however with the use of panoramic photographs I hope it offers a better representation of the broad spacious lands that I experienced.

Shot of the Day #38

I woke up fairly early (6:30 am) and went down to the Olgas viewing area to catch the sunrise. There were quite a few photographers there already, with their tripods setup in prime position (you have to get up pretty early to get the special corner edge of the platform :P), so I had to race around them with my camera capturing the different angles as the light changed over the Olgas and Uluru. In this photograph you can see the small silhouette of Uluru on the horizon (right), and the rising sun as the light spreads out across the frosty desert.

This long exposure is of a Road Train travelling along the Stuart Highway not far out from Alice Springs. I was standing just off to the side of the road with my camera and tripod when this massive (only) 2 trailer Road Train came howling past. The red and orange LED lights made excellent light streams, but unfortunately my camera’s sensor was too hot to expose long enough to capture the stars (so clear in the Outback) :P !
