Sunset at the abandoned desert railway station in Oodnadatta, far north South Australia. Formerly a stop on the old, superseded Ghan Central Australian line to Alice Springs. It is one of the remotest and hottest places in South Australia.
Taking the yaks home
In the remote Spiti Valley, at 4300 meters in the Himalayan state of Himachal Pradesh, India. The yaks are returning home for the night, safe from wolves. Although they are a bit large for snow leopards to tackle, the young can be vulnerable. There is qui…
Paddy melons on the roadside in desert Western Australia, in the Murchison region.
The road is the red dirt on the right hand top of the picture. Paddy melons are not edible for humans.....They thrive in desert areas
Nothing eats them: they are poisonous…
