Alice Springs lies very close to the centre of a Australia far from any major cities. It was originally only known for the small Telegraph Station used to relay messages across the Red Centre. The town is layed-out in almost perfect symmetry with ‘The Gap’, a natural break in the MacDonald Ranges. This panoramic view of Alice Springs was taken from on top of Anzac Hill and hand held (360┬░ Degrees). I used a Circular Polariser and as you can see it is best when 90┬░Degrees to the Sun (Dark Blue region in the sky) :) !

Shot of the Day #37

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 !
