Photographer's Note

This is the road heading east out of Kimba on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.

Kimba, a pioneering town was established in 1915, the name derived from the Aboriginal meaning of "Bush Fire".
Pastoral leases were held over the area from 1872 until pioneer farmers grew the first crops in 1908. The Kimba district is now one of the major wheat-producing areas in South Australia. Explorer Edward John Eyre made two exploratory journeys north of Adelaide to Lake Torrens and across Eyre Peninsula. Eyre discovered the Gawler Ranges in 1839, naming them after the then Governor of South Australia. On June 18, 1840, Edward John Eyre ventured again, traversing from Adelaide to King George Sound in Western Australia. During this gruelling expedition Eyre camped at Refuge Rocks, now locally called Secret Rocks.

I really like the perspective of this shot.
