BIG FLAT AND RED

GREAT NORTHERN HIGHWAY – Landscape

Once the Hamersley Ranges are left behind, the landscape flattens into arid, semi desert. Red sand ridges and low saltbush take over, broken by the odd small jump up or dry salt flat. After a couple of months of stinking hot weather it was a welcome relief to encounter cloud and a few heavy downpours of rain. The skys were spectacular, the colours were  intensified by the wet and the smell of rain was fantastic. Ideal conditions for racing around taking photos.
