    Something a bit different. A wide brown land.

    Stories with Pictures ...

    ---

    Farmers across New South Wales and Queensland are calling it the worst drought in living memory.

    From ground level, Australia's drought looks like a featureless, brown dustbowl, but from the air it transforms into an artistry of colour
    and texture as the land cracks open under a blazing sun.


    Australian drought pictured from above

    Farmer Ash Whitney stands in the middle of a dried-up dam in a drought-affected paddock on his property west of Gunnedah.
    "I have been here all my life, and this drought is feeling like it will be around a while," said Mr Whitney.




    Farmers in NSW and Queensland have run out of feed and are struggling to keep their stock alive



    Cow walks away from a water tank (drought)


    A cow walks away from a water tank in a drought-affected paddock on Tom Wollaston's property west of Tamworth.
    "I can't seem to be able to do anything else apart from just feed, and keep things going, and it [the drought] seems to be
    one step ahead of me all the time," said Mr Wollaston.



    A lone tree from above (drought)


    A lone tree stands near a water trough in a drought-affected paddock on Jimmie and May McKeown's property
    on the outskirts of Walgett.

    Patterns in a paddock from above (drought)



    Patterns can be seen in a drought-affected paddock created by a plough on a property located west of Gunnedah.

    There is a great video on an aerial shot of sheep being fed.

    I can't show the link because the Forum software stuffs it up.

    In the shadow of a wave at Cronulla, New South Wales.



    The salt lakes at Point Sinclair in South Australia.



    Motocross tricks making us wish we could fly! At the Murwillumbah Showground, New South Wales.

    More on that region is here ... http://teakdoor.com/australia-and-ne...old-coast.html (TRAVEL - QLD - NSW ... Back of the Gold Coast - Springbrook)




    The sun sets over Wild Horse Mountain in Queensland

    I've climbed Wild Horse Mountain ... more a Hill then Mountain.
    It's main function is the government's bush fire/wildfire look-out perched atop.
    There are a lot of pine plantations in the area. And pineapples.
    Also climbed all those mountains except Mt. Coonowrin (second from the right) which has 'salmons leap' which is a particularly difficult traverse.

    This blotched blue-tongue was spotted on New South Wales' south coast.

    A cave in the Namadgi National Park in the ACT is a stunning reminder of Mother Nature.
