Cattle Country
Australia

I found the country at the upper side of the Ashburton River to be some of the driest I had ever seen in Austalia. Many cattle stations exist in this area and yet at the time this photo was taken it looked as though it had not rained in years. I was following the road from Mount Augustus towards Tom Price to the North. The road was long and rough yet I found the country here amazing. I drove my 4 wheel drive to the top of this hill to shoot some photos of the sun setting. After taking the shots for this panoramic photo I continued on and shot a timelapse of the sun falling behind the hills to the West.

The timelapse sequence can be seen as part of a video I made of my travels in Australia in 2011.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
