Photographs and Adventures

Coober Pedy

Coober Pedy is still a rough and dusty town and doesn’t seem too different from our last visit in 1998. I was looking forward to photographing one of the explosives trucks that used to roar around the town, but I was disappointed, I think maybe the rules have changed and they aren’t allowed in town any more.

Home, sweet home. Boy that car must go through lots of tyres!

Moonrise over the breakaways

The Breakaways are as breathtakingly beautiful as ever and the trumpet sounded wonderful echoing through the desert.

    Thanks for posting these – great shots! Love the shot of the mines and the moonrise over the Breakaways.

    I don’t think I’ll be moving to Coober Pedy! 🙂
