A recent trip with my partner from Perth to Exmouth and back, via the 'Middle of Somewhere' :-)

All with the E-3 and either ZD 12-60 SWD or ZD 50-200 SWD.

Comment and critique welcome!

Great series! I like the 5th the most, but think that some of the sky could have been cropped out for a better effect. Also, would have loved to see larger resolutions!

Thanks guys :-) Adam, the shots here are 'higher' because of the different aspect ratio used by 4/3rds (4:3 funnily enough). It takes a bit of getting used to after using the 'normal' 3:2, but I like it :-)

I think for this shot having the extra sky adds to the sense of vastness that you experience constantly in the Outback.
