Tranquil scenes in the Australia outback.

Yesterday I drove to Innaminka S.A. to take one of the ringers to visit the flying doctor. The trip was very scenic, and Innaminka was an interesting little town, consisting of a pub and service station and accomadation, and very friendly people.This image was taken just after we crossed the S.A boarder  back into Qld.

Dingo near my door.

Sorry the image is so bad, but it was very early and still dark, the stars were still out, I had to use a really high ISO and the flash on my camera and hope the dingo didnt disapear before I was able to get the camera.

I was aprox 30 metres away and it just stood there staring at me and was in no hurry to go away.
The 3 little pigs chased it away, (my good little guard pigs) it is getting very game to get as close as it got.
