Photographer's Note

"Once a jolly swagman sat beside the billabong,
Under the shade of a coolibah tree,
And he sang as he sat and waited till his billy boiled:
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me"
The opening words of the great folksong of the Australian outback. Music by Banjo Patterson and words by Christina McPherson; written in Winton, Queensland in 1895.
This is in the neighbouring Northern Territory in the desert outside Alice Springs. A swagman was itinerant traveler is the outback. The 'Red Center' or the Central Australian Desert is vast and cruel place of amazing beauty. The soil and rocks are red with iron ore with only scrub and some gum trees, that manage to survive in one of the harshest and driest places on earth.It is a place of stunning beauty, I hope my picture gives some small impression of that.
