The Australian Outback

Photography Prints

Written by:Gary Wonning

A familiar sight in the outback, the road train pulls three trailers and is over 150 feet long.  They are needed to deliver food and supplies to the various isolated sections of the desert. They are the lifeline to most living in harsh conditions. Without them, many would be unable to get supplies on a regular basis. Because of the distances they must travel, the ability to pull three trailers makes it possible for the truckers to realize a profit.

The perfect way to start a day, an early morning balloon ride from Alice Springs. Located in the middle of Australia, Alice Springs is  about as isolated as one can get. The balloon ride is the best way to observe wildlife in the bush. Quiet and floating above the desert landscape, one can observe the animals below without them even noticing there is someone observing them.

Mayan book

It doesn’t take long to discover that Belize is a land of contrasts. From the poverty and disarray of the cities to the quiet countryside, many differences are soon found. With poverty and crime running rampant in cities such as Belize City and Belmopan, the traveler has to be constantly aware of his surroundings and protect whatever is being carried. Remember,that camera hanging around your neck is worth more than the average Belizean earns in a year. All that aside, the Mayan people are wonderfully warm people many of whom go out of their way to please visitors. Traveling into the countryside one discovers thatch roof homes with no doors or windows. Because of the warm climate , they can live comfortably all year with a gentle breeze flowing through the open windows and doors. I was struck with the concept that although no utility lines were visible, a lot of homes had a satellite dish in the front yard.

Available in both hard copy and Ebook format.
