#49,50, 2015- Panos from outback Oz

a) Part of the 'great inland sea' of millenia ago, now eroded to mesas fading into the mist



b) typical gravel-surfaced road well into the outback of Western Aust.
Quite okay for 80km/h driving x the 200+km length of road, in this case to a tiny place called Marble Bar, a town that recorded "The greatest heat wave of all time" ~ daily temperatures exceeding 100F / 38C for 160 consecutive days, way back in 1923-24

#56, 57, 58- 2011- In the shearing shed
Back in 2011 while in western Queensland we were invited to visit a local sheep station where shearing was in progress. It was a 300km round trip from the town of Longreach to the property of about 16,000hectares / 40,000 acres holding around 12,000 sheep. The shearing team of 15 people were mostly New Zealanders who run a contract shearing business, travelling across the country during the season.

a) 2- shearers in action


b) throwing the fleece onto the sorting table + squirting anti-fungal stuff to protect sheep from parasites, blow-fly, ticks and lice.


c) the semi-trailer loaded with around 280 wool bales weighing approx 42,000kg

#61, 62, 63- Startrails from Downunder

When we travel around Australia for months at a time, and with TV being so full of crap from Hollywood these days, I often setup the camera for a star trail. Typically these images have from 75 to 400 exposures, usually 20 or 30secs each and the JPGs are stacked using 'www.Startrails.de' software, a really beaut and easy to use bit of kit. Camera WB is always 'sun', ISO-800/1600, lens set to 1x zoom (24mm FF equiv) and the Panny superzoom / bridge camera does the rest while I'm inside the motorhome reading a book and sipping something 'nice'.

a) taken under a full moon

10 images of 30 seconds before stacking

b) lights of a town some 30km away from my campsite

300 images of 30 secs before stacking

c) with some clouds floating overhead during the night - camera pointing to south celestial pole

100 images of 30 seconds before stacking

#70, 71, 72, Aussie Road-trains ... the "18-wheeler" trucks that criss-cross the outback daily

Around the world there are many people interested in trucks and heavy transport - here are three to contemplate. Highly skilled Aussie Truckies manage these monsters daily

a) fully loaded, this fella pulls 142 metric tonnes per load over a 600km route to the port


b) fully loaded, 120,000 litres of mixed fuels being delivered to an outback iron-ore mining complex


c) known as a "B-Quad" these fellas are the general goods delivery trucks for the outback, sometimes covering 3,000km per trip
