Photos of the Australian Bush

Outback Photographic Stroll with an Android

Armed with my trusty Samsung Galaxy S2 camera, wich is also a phone among other things.. I headed out for a stroll in the bush. It was a perfect day for a walk in the Western Australian outback, sunny not too hot and a slight cooling breeze to help you forget the over friendly bush flies.

The area near Lake Irwin some 400km north of Kalgorlie had just had some rain recently, in fact it has had quite a bit of rain recently and the outback bush is certainly making the most of it and showing it.

The contrast between alive and dead in the outback here makes quite an interesting subject particularly when the alive is booming in such a harsh and unforgiving environment. Just a few days ago we had 40 degC + temperatures, then the next day it dropped to 25 DegC, the desert / outback can be very unpredictable and this makes diversity a must for survival.

The photos below were taken with a Samsung Galaxy S2 Smart Phone – 8 mega pixel camera, and I must admit I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. The images are a small example of the diversity and beauty in plant life in this region.
