The thirsty outback road

One of the best things about our recent road trip to Lightning Ridge had to be some of the classic Aussie architecture. Rusty sheets of metal thrown together as a shack for miners in a treeless desert, glorious old pubs that offer man sized meals, icy cold beer and a great people watch; as well as quirky fibro homes that remain unchanged since the sixties. Complete with garden gnomes.

I liked the way the brilliant blue desert sky contrasts against fading metal, dry red sand and sparse vegetation. For me, the old pieces that are left untouched in peoples back yards for years tell a story, they add colour to a sometimes desolate environment and usually end up housing a bit of native wild life as well.

These images show the places that captured my attention.
