Alice Springs was named after the waterhole ‘Alice Spring’ that was named after the wife of Sir Charles Todd (the Postmaster – as the town was originally a Telegraph Station). This photograph is a stitched panorama of two images – my polariser was able emphasise the reflections on the waters surface and create a more vibrant look to the overall photo.

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.

The climb to the top of Uluru is well worth the effort – the panoramic view is amazing and the thought that your in the middle of Australia! This photograph is a panorama stitch of fifteen photos, and as you can see a polariser has made the colours very rich, however the dark spots in the sky are a result of the maximum polarisation being 90ยบ Degrees to the sun.

Northern Territory is ‘Outback Australia’ – as their number plates say :) The Northern Territory Flag consists of the Southern Cross, the Sturt’s Desert Rose and the red/orange colour of the Land (Ochre). This photograph was taken at Anzac Hill in Alice Springs looking directly up at the flagpole and with the use of my polariser I made the sky almost black – contrasting the colours of the flag. I made some small adjustments with the techniques used in my tutorial: https://www.scottphotographics.com/how-to-make-a-photograph-lomographic-in-gimp!
