Since I returned from Australia last week I’ve been sharing stories about some of the things I did there. Things like go to a regatta in which all the boats were made out of beer cans, spend an afternoon at the camel races and explore the amazing Aboriginal artwork found in Kakadu National Park. That is barely scratching the surface however and I have more to share about the hiking and camping I did while there as well and eventually I’ll get around to telling those tales too.
Today I wanted to share some of the photos I took while in the Northern Territory, which featured some of the most dramatic and breathtaking scenery I’ve ever seen. The Outback is a wild and remote place, mostly untouched by man and there are places there that are still overgrown with prehistoric plant life that isn’t found anywhere else on our planet. The sheer expanse of the place is mind boggling as it is at times both desolate and foreboding, yet oddly inviting and intriguing at the same time.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and if what I’ve written about Australia’s Northern Territory hasn’t inspired you to want to visit yet, perhaps some of these images will. The sunsets at the “Top End” of the NT are some of the best you’ll find anywhere on Earth and the sweeping vistas of the “Red Center” will compel you to want to explore more. This is a part of the world that is still open for exploration and you get the sense that there are still secrets to be discovered deep in the heart of the Outback.
I had fun capturing these photos and I hope you enjoy seeing them as well. Check out the full gallery by clicking here.
