2004 Outback Trip (12 galleries)

This was a two-week, 4500-Km trip into the "corner country" (where New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland meet) by Subaru Forester, the first week by myself, the second week with my daughter #2. In my mind was the theme of finding water in the arid parts of the country (and photographing it, of course). The country has long been in drought. But there had been a little rain recently, and it rained again on Day 4 of my trip. There was water in ephemeral ponds beside the roads, and some roads were closed. So some of the big areas of water I had planned to see were either dry because of the drought or inaccessible because of the rain. There are 12 albums here; the slideshow is a selection from the whole set. Click on a slideshow image or on a thumbnail to see the album.
