These are a bunch of pictures from Australia outback, sadly, its surprising how few Australians have seen its true beauty, and opt for overseas travel.

I've shown these pics a long time ago on the old swamp, sadly I'm not good enough to have taken these.

In my early days back when I worked to live, until I lived to work, I roamed all over Australia, picking up work on cattle stations to build up some money to move on.
Those days I had a decent camera and opted to take color slides, that have traveled with me all over the country, 95% or more of these lost their color, wasn't a smart idea after all. I have since owning a computer scanned them to jpegs, but many are not worth looking at.

Here is an example of what happens to color slides over the years. Should have went with color pictures.



















The slides that held their color were Kodak, but because the other brands had plastic frames I mostly kept away from the kodak.
I think Andy will recognize the better ones as I'm pretty sure I have taken them out at Kings Canyon, I know he's been there.

Crossing the roper river, NT.

An easy place to get dinner or become dinner. I lived in that box on the back of that diesel LC. grin
I might add, it was the best time in my life.

A MONSTER crocodile lurking in the deep, dark waters of the Roper River could be the biggest ever seen, with several fisherman claiming it to be at least 8m long. The photo of the enormous saltie was taken by Katherine man Richard Sallis and his mate Ian
