Photographer's Note

Please open both photos in new tabs for the better versions.
As we drove south along the Darling River it was mostly dead flat but with varying vegetation (so never boring) although the top photo here does have a low ridge in the background. Also in the top photo you can see a Red Kangaroo, the largest kangaroo species. This one is a big male and would be about 1.6 metres tall. The males are commonly know as "big reds" and can cover up to 8 metres in a leap.
In the lower photo you can see that the land here can get very soggy after rain or floods - the evidence of that is the white layer of salt between the plants.
In the WS is a photo that shows different vegetation, much with red leaves and one with silver leaves. That tree line in the background is where the Darling River is.
The photos also have fairly dramatic clouds - a prelude to rain that came later that day.
In the second WS is a photo of the not very exciting pub in the tiny town of Tilpa (Population of the town and district is just 44).
