Photographer's Note

The Todd River runs through and along side Alice Springs (which really was named for a woman named Alice, and there really is a Spring a bit outside of town). The ‘river’ is somewhat of a surprise to most American and European folks, since it rarely has water running in it (only on average 20 days out of the year, if I remember correctly).

This shot, for me, epitomizes the best of Alice Springs; you’ll see no art galleries, no adverts for off-road tours or the best deal on a didgeridoo…all you’ll see along this walk (about an hour from the center of town) until you reach the old Alice Springs telegraph station is sky, sand, bush, and wildlife, along with the occasional, few fellow humans.

Post production: sharpened, auto contrast, auto levels, increase saturation +3, added borders.

Conditions: Clear and crisp winter’s day; about 10 Celsius, taken around 1pm.
