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.

Kings Canyon was beautiful – I made it there at around sunset, greeted by the 270m sandstone chasms – brilliantly lit up by the dropping sun, which produced a golden fringe around the canyon forest. Heading back from the main lookout I side tracked into the river bed a little and this pool of water was perfectly placed for me to capture the reflections and canyon walls! I had to do a free-hand panorama to include both the reflections and orange sandstone, I later stitched the nineteen photographs together in Photoshop, creating this vertical panorama!
