ON TO BOURKETOWN

ON TO BOURKETOWN
The road out of Normanton to Bourketown was incredibly good. After a while we discovered why – we had just caught up with the grader. Problem is, what do you do? – sit in dust at crawl speed on a nice smooth road or pass and suffer the corrugations?
We passed soon to come across this guy bogged in a creek.
The driver was sitting under a tree, complaining about his boss telling to go via the swamp. The boss was on his way back to Normanton to find a chain.
Not far from Bourketown are the Leichhardt  Falls. The Leichhardt River spreads out over a series of eroded rock shelves and the wet season piles up banks of sand all over the place.
The falls look amazing just before the sun comes up. Sorry about the clichéd long exposure – couldn’t help it.
Downstream as the sun is about to come up.
