At the edge


We have passed the irrigation zone and are moving further west. The trees are getting shorter and the earth is becoming bare.

  1. ... and the sky is getting blue. What a sky!

    Besides my "I want blue sky, too" rambling I really like the photo with the sky inhabiting two thirds of the frame.

  2. This is what the land will support without diverting water from its natural course.

    *grin*

    But then, man has always done this, just that in this case the natural watercourse and catchment is depleted severely.

  3. Sue and I just got home from a little getaway so I am catching up on your travel posts. I had no idea that Australia produced so much produce. Irrigation is the miracle I suppose.

  4. Martina and Julie, more sky and another very interesting landscape change coming up the day after tomorrow when we cross the Hay Plains ... so watch this space.

    TG, yes Australia feeds itself and exports huges amounts of primary produce.
