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 Formerly a stop on the old, superseded Ghan Central Australian line to Alice Springs.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.

Is there a road to here, Diana? It all looks so dusty and arid, and yet it seems that some folks still live here.
HFF and enjoy the weekend.

Yes. There is a long red dirt road in. It is a functioning remote small village in the middle of a big red desert.

It does look hot and deserted, but ... light is magic! Even rusty old abandoned things get to shine in it with gorgeous colors! You did a wonderful job here, Diana.
Sorry for the very belated HFF ...!
