You don’t make a photograph just with a camera.You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.

Hi all,We are a couple that really enjoy getting away from the hum drum of city life, packing up the 4wd drive and heading off to find some quiet country BACK ROADS to wander along with the camera bags on the back seat and an ever watchful eye looking for interesting things to find and photograph.There is so much to see when you start looking, and the way we look at things makes the journey much more interesting and fun. Along the way when you see a “NO THROUGH ROAD” (if it’s not private property) go down and look at what you can see; yes you have to drive back out again, but these are the types of roads that have hidden gems that are not normally seen or experienced. These are the types of roads to go down to see what you can find. At the beginning of each day, regardless of whether it’s a day trip or a few nights away, we choose where we would like to finish the day. We then put the next town along the route into the GPS. What this does is finds us the shortest route to the next town, which may be a sealed road, but quite often it will lead us down dirt roads that you would not normally think to go on. Dirt roads usually mean quiet country sides, places that people very rarely go to and along the way you will find or see many things that most people will never see. While most will indulge in “tunnel vision travel” on a major route, sitting on high speed, hurrying to get to their next destination.Our country’s Back Roads travel through some amazing scenery that is littered with paddocks, old buildings, history and many odd and interesting things to see if you just slow down, get off the beaten track and “see” what is around you. Each town has its own story to tell, and I don’t mean tourist sites, I mean drive around the back streets, see what the locals use for fences, letter boxes, or what the local sculptor has put up in their town, have lunch in the local pub and talk to the locals for points of interest.All in all, enjoy your drive, stop look around and take those photos that will remind you of the enjoyment you found while travelling the Back Roads of Australia.See you out there somewhere on the back roads,
