This Time Last Week……..

September 9, 2013

_DSC2729_1400By Danielle Lancaster
My view this time tonight a week ago was an expansive night sky scattered with stars and galaxies being frequently pierced by falling stars – many a wish was made.

I was surrounded by like-minded photographer’s finishing another Bunginderry Photography retreat and we had an awesome time in this unique location.

Bunginderry is a working sheep and cattle station located in far south-west Queensland, the heart of the Channel Country and forming part of the catchment to Lake Eyre. It borders the Grey Range to the east and the sand dunes of the Simpson Desert to the west. It is outback Australia, an arid environment and photographers delight.

Those that like wildlife are usually not disappointed. A pair of western bower birds live in the oleander trees outside our quarters. Zebra finches play each day in a puddle near our back door and budgies, corella’s, Major Mitchell parrots and other birds skirt through the grasses resting on old dead trees.

This year we had eight black swans visit a dam on the property. Then there’s the butterflies, kangaroos, emus and the list goes on.

This was my third year to Bunginderry for a photography retreat and its diverse range of ecosystems never disappoints. Thank you Bunginderry!
