Wonderful colours Lex!!

That looks like an airstrip not far from where you took this picture, on the aerial photo...?

Looks like a reasonable run thru there Lex.. until it rains of course. Good shot there.

Hi Marion, there were 4x4's but I got around by 2 wheels.. :). Caroline there is a nice airstrip surrounded by a tall roo proof fence and a nice airport sea container. I belongs to the Tropicana mine company. Jock this was a fast little section of track inbetween the burnt bits..

Is that you signature written in the sand in front Lex? Looks like a GasGas tyre tread. Lovely photo mate. Top class. cheers Gary

Aye Gary a signature it is but a Yamaha's I believe as I was astride my beast as I took this pic looking in the direction of our travel.. :)

Close, but no cigar!

The Airport Lounge might provide some nice shade on a scorching its shadow, that is.

I think so Caroline, that is if one can be bothered to scale the fence that looks like it has an electric wire running around it.. There were some solar panels and antennas sticking out of the airport sea container lounge.. :)
