Lake Eyre

It has been a little while since my last post so hopefully you have noticed the new images in the gallery and Instagram posts. In short my week in the outback sleeping under the stars and visiting Lake Eyre was fantastic. There is nothing like getting away from it all and exploring the wilderness. The trip produced a few good images with two that I was really happy with. As for Lake Eyre, well it’s a long way to go. I stayed at Halligan Bay which is just over 60km from William Creek. Driving out there is almost like traversing a burnt moonscape that is void of everything. Its a great place to view the lake (much better than the South lake) with about 90 degrees of bare horizon stretching across salt pan. It’s also a very clean salt lake and you don’t have to walk far out onto it. Unfortunately it has lost most of the deep red colour it had back in February but that’s luck. Only a small amount of water is actually left. Would I go back? Not in the short term and only if it fills to capacity though it is certainly a place that must be experienced if you are up that way or just need to get out of town for the weekend.
