When exactely was this trip.  It looks realy cool!
Thank you for your comment. All the pictures are from various trips we did in the last 15 years. As the title says, they are just pictures I like and they are not in any particular order.

In the lush North a mosquito fumigation truck is always a welcome sight,  even if it's not a Land Rover.

Just think DDT was sprayed about just like that back in the 1960s. Can remember camping in the 50 in Spain for a couple of fags from my parents the guy would spray in your tent to stop mosquitoes! How things change.

The cheap camera must have distorted the image. We did about 170k kms in 18 years. We've been very lucky, no major breakdowns on any of the trips.

The part we did..the Gibb river road in 2006 Broome to Darwin ( by T...ta)  ...before the remaining stretches of that highway became mostly tar sealed more recently , was meant to have been the first of a number of outback trips. Due to one thing and another for us these have  never happened. Fabulous to see your images of places we can only imagine....

When it started to rain in the middle of the night, not wanting to be marooned, we packed up and left at 2am for Bedourie, a town with a population of about 140, 200km away.
Shortly after dawn we stopped and cooked breakfast on the tailgate. (picture). The trip took about  7hrs. With the absence of guide posts it's almost impossible to drive at night,
 in the rain in flat featureless country. There is absolutely nothing, apart from the rain, to reflect the light. It just disappears.
