I think the photo above says it all. As they say, you can die out here.

About the photographer

My brother, Bryan Clode, works as a remote area nurse, mostly in Aboriginal communities, all around Australia. He has spent years living in or visiting most states of Australia, and has an intimate knowledge of the country, including many of the less visited parts. He has always been an outdoors person, whether it is hiking in Tasmania, or taking photographs in the Northern Territory.

Bryan’s photographic experience spans decades, and he is able to utilise technology to make photos that dramatically showcase the magnificence of Australian landscapes and seascapes. For example, some of the photos are tone mapped or fused to create stupendous scenes.

We are very lucky indeed, that he is willing to freely share his stunning photos for the rest of us to enjoy.

I love spending time with Bryan, especially when we we are taking photos or talking photography (sometimes I just pretend to understand what he is talking about!). His main interest is wide angle landscapes and seascapes, while I tend to concentrate on telephoto wildlife, and macro flowers and insects, which as you can imagine results in some very interesting and enjoyable outings and discussions.

Thanks Bryan.

See “Photos Australian Outback 2”, and “Photos Tasmania” for more of Bryan’s photos.

Also, I strongly recommend you see my mother’s (Sian Butler) beautiful pastel and watercolour paintings of the Australian Outback at https://tracts4free.wordpress.com/australian-outback-paintings-1/
