Self Indulged Online Travel Magazine



I recently got back from a trip on The Ghan for the magazine (article HERE if you’re looking to kill a few minutes :-) ) and this is one of the shots that I took of the carriages as we got off in Alice Springs.  The trip was great but when we stopped at Katherine and Alice I didn’t want to get back on….just wanted to get into a 4wd and take off in search of ‘perfect light’.  The second shot is Cape Spencer lighthouse on Yorke Penninsula in South Australia.  I have been guilty of bagging out South Australia in the past, I’m not usually a wine drinker so the Barossa Valley doesn’t really thrill me. When I got off the Ghan I decided to take off to Yorke Penninsula for a few days instead and was suprised to discover just how beautiful it is down there.  Will post a few more shots from that region soon.

    The Ghan would be a great trip Sandy you would have liked it for sure as I can tell from the story
    . I’ve travelled up beside the line in a 4wd for a little way and love the country out around there.

    That lighthouse looks interesting.

    Hi Sandra,

    I love the Ghan shot. Very iconic. I see what you meean about the Eyre Peninsula now. The lighthouse shot is really nice as well. I love the use of the footpath as a leading line.

    Thanks Jamie….it’s actually Yorke Peninsula (Eyre was too far away for this trip) and it does have some lovely spots. If you’re ever in SA I’d recommend the drive :-)

    Cheers Merv. It’d be great to drive through the middle (it’s on my list of things to do) By the way, great effort getting shots off during the wedding. I was at a wedding at kings Park on the weekend and wished that I’d taken my camera to get the dusty pink sky over the city.
