After a week in the warmth of Alice Springs, with sunshine and temperatures by day in the low twenties, with cooler nights and mornings, this place is like the Arctic! The fire is once more burning 24/7 and thermals are the order of the day!
I had a fabulous time, saw extraordinary scenery, traveled many kilometers, twice flew in helicopters, saw wild dingos, camels and emus, ate a camelburger, learned a great deal and took some amazing photographs of landscapes, birds and reptiles. Trekabout Photography Tours were the group with whom I went to the Red Centre, and would highly recommend them for anyone who wants to do this sort of workshop. Initially we were told there would be up to 16 participants with two tutors, but it turned out there were only four others, due to various reasons. The two leaders had considered cancelling the trip, but decided to make it a holiday for themselves and take three weeks to drive from Brisbane, taking their time on the way home. Of course for us it was fantastic, and meant extra excursions not included in the original itinerary, and more individual attention from Mark and Michael, the tutors. Now I need to save some pennies in order to do one of their other trips!
I came home with over 2,500 images, and am still going through them all, doing the post processing on those I wish to keep and ditching all those I don’t. Here are just a few to give you a taste.
