DESCRIPTION

Coober Pedy in central Australia has the most incredible landscape; at once harsh and barren, but also dramatic and beautiful. The mounds left by opal mining test-drill holes scatter the landscape as far as the eye can see. The result is an overwhelming sense of expanse and isolation. Man’s constant need to explore by destroying can occasionally make something beautiful in the process.

Coober Pedy, South Australia, September 2016
