ROADKILL: Sadly, dead kangaroos are a common sight on the roads of outback New South Wales. Mainly, they are hit by cars or trucks. Over the 600 km I travelled in 4-wheel drive, I saw dozens.
BLOGGING A BOG: Between Packsaddle Roadhouse and the Albert Hotel in outback Milparinka the car got bogged. Bastard. Doomed. Because of a recent downpour the roads were a trifle tricky to navigate. However, my friend saved the day and managed to proceed into another wonderful spot in the great NSW outback. #outbackNSW #seeaustralia #packsaddle #panicsetin
VISITED MILPARINKA and shot this image early this morning. The colors; dazzling. Milparinka is rich in Australian native landscape and culture. Also home to a definitive collection of historic mining sites and icons. And I loved the Albert Hotel where I slept. Phil and Bec Young the owners of the pub, warned me that the place was haunted. I slept like a log. #NewSouthWales#outbackNSW #seeaustralia
WHEN I went to shoot the magnificent Sculptures in the Living Desert Sanctuary in Broken Hill today a man and his assistant was doing a fashion shoot – or it maybe it was a wedding. So I joined in and shot this image. Loved the red dress. It appeared to be a very special occasion. The landscape was stunning .#NSW#outbackNSW #brokenhill #seeaustralia
SPRAY IT AGAIN: As travel writer Lee Mylne and I were on our way to the historic Albert Hotel in Milparinka, she feathered the clutch and ploughed through a causeway which had recently been flooded. For me to shoot this, I had her go back and have another burst. Love it. What a way to go! You beauty!#outbackNSW #seeaustralia #NewSouthWales
On the Silver City Highway north of Broken Hill is the tombstone of Eliza Kennedy. It stands along overlooking a huge lake. It is a hot day, but it is chilling. On her headstone it reads: “For charity covereth a multitude of sins.” Folklore says that Eliza had a chequered past – a woman of the night. I say good luck to her. #outbackNSW #NewSouthWales#seeaustralia
