The Outback provides an amazing spectrum of sights, ranging from classically beautiful scenes through to weird and wonderful surprises. These “Classic Outback” posts will provide a series of scenes, each of which could be in any one of a thousand different places in the Outback, and portraying a classical aspect of Outback scenery.
This first Classic Outback shot shows that beautiful combination of Outback colours – the red soil road, the grey-green foliage, and the clear blue sky. I find driving along such a road to be not only a visual delight, but (usually) a very pleasant driving experience as well. The type of road is wide enough to provide reasonable notice of local residents who decide to run (or hop) across the road without notice, and also a very smooth and quiet surface to drive on.
But this picture will no doubt provoke different reactions from different people. What does it say to you? Please add your comment below.
