Moonrise over the Yunta Hills & saltbush plains

Outback hills with the scrubby saltbush in the foreground. Trees mark an ephemeral watercourse. 

The road from Adelaide to Broken Hill saw a transition from some of the finest cropping country in Australia to the pastoral lands that host our extraordinary and famous merino studs. Finally, travelling further north into the wild grazing country where each sheep would need many acres of land just to eke out enough food to stay alive.

This is laughingly called two sheep country. It’s said they worked in pairs. One sheep would lift up a rock so the other one could eat whatever crawled out from under it.

The road further north of Broken Hill called, proving itself to be an endless journey into seeming moonlit nothingness.

This photograph shows a small set of hills with the scrubby saltbush in the foreground. A few trees lined up to mark an ephemeral watercourse at the foot of the ranges in the middle distance. The hills themselves were some hard rocky remnant that proved more resistant to the flood-plain erosion that had levelled the surrounding landscape over the millennium. It has a story.
