Lake Boolka in north west New South Wales (NSW) actually sits right on the border with South Australia (SA) and the dog fence, which follows the border at this point, runs through this fresh water lake.

Well, we're camped at the shooting range of Broken Hill Field and Game Association. We come to be camped here because our traveling companions, members of the Bermagui Field and Game Association, are shooting in the current competition over the weekend and it worked in well to incorporate this shoot in our wider outback adventure.

To date, I haven't seen a camel in the wild. Traveling from White Cliffs toward Wilcannia, Broken Hill and Menindee in outback New South Wales (NSW) we saw this camel not that far off the road and as I pulled up, my eyes focused on the camel wagon. On stopping, the owner, Ken, stood up from his seat on the ground beside a small campfire with a black billy.

It was late afternoon by the time I got away from the homestead at Bosworth Station in outback South Australia, heading for Andamooka Island in Lake Torrens, about 20km to the north east. The night was followed by a strange morning's photo shoot.

Images created on a medium format film camera, of the channel between the mainland and Andamooka Island in Lake Torrens, South Australia.

In the channel pertaining to Andamooka Island, are rocks of graphic significance, common in this area of salty, barren wasteland.

Camping at Lake Richardson on Arcoona Station in outback South Australia, not all that far from Woomera, I was up and going before daylight to photograph the salt lake in the flattering morning light as dawn broke and the sun rose.

The dawn and sunrise rolled on. The excitement of the light and images of a new place!

It was lunch time, so we pulled off the track and headed toward a shady tree beside Arcoona Lake, only a kilometre or two from Arcoona Homestead.

Nicky and I left the ute and trailer at Arcoona Homestead and headed off on the motorbikes for the week.

About to say "Oomph" this great creature, sculptured naturally in the rock, caught my eye on the edge of the channel separating Andamooka Island in Lake Torrens from the mainland. It's on Bosworth Station in outback South Australia.
