Standing at the end of the world


Photo of the Australian landscape just outside Bathurst

Just got back from a short trip to the Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo, about 408 kilometres inland from Sydney. I'll post some of the billions of photos I took tomorrow.

To tide you over until then, this unedited photo was taken just outside Bathurst on the highest hill we could find. There wasn't a trace of civilisation to be seen anywhere save for the road itself and a few telegraph poles. The landscape and colour of the sky was just incredible, and… there wasn't a sound. No kidding, it felt like we were standing at the end of the world.

I like that shade of blue… not that you would have noticed ;).
