The top end on Instagram

July 15, 2012

in Australia,Northern Territory

Pretty much as soon as I arrived home from my recent photo safari across Australia’s top end I was struck down with the killer flu that’s been making its way around the country. Barely able to get out of bed, I haven’t yet been able to organise my thoughts or images from the trip.

Rest assured that’s coming – in the meantime, here’s a snapshot of my six days in the top end.

Reunited! One of the highlights of the trip was being able to travel with Anthony and Elise from PositiveWorldTravel.com – despite being back in the same city for the last six months, I hadn’t seen them since our crazy trek across Guatemala.

I always choose the aisle seat…so I can never quite see the view from the window.

A little bit flasher than my usual digs: at the Mantra Pandanas in Darwin

Welcome drinks at sunset, Darwin

Mindil Beach sunset, Darwin. This beach reminded Elise and I of India, for some reason – maybe it was the hordes of people, all on the beach fully dressed?

Brand new Canon gear, including the Canon 650d…quite literally with my name on it.

Indestructible

The rules are pretty clear at outback watering hole, the Bark Hut Inn.

Road train

Shooting rock art at Nourlangie, Kakadu National Park

Fearless leader and friend

Early morning on Yellow Water Billabong

Glamping at Jabiru

Just another day in the Territory…hanging out with a croc…and some ducks

Perfectly prepared for Territory Day

Sad to leave Darwin and my room with a view at the Holiday Inn.
