On the Way to Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia.

Some years ago we visited Alice Springs in the Northern Territory (NT) of Australia.
Back in those days Digital Cameras were not common as they are today.  It was a problem to have the photos taken off the 'card'. When I found a place it was the same price as getting films developed. Thank goodness technology moved on and places in the outback came to have the facility. Laptops were expensive back then as well.  However, with extra cards for my digital camera I managed.

The two photos are on the way to Alice Springs (Alice) and I am sure many people remember the movie 'A Town Like Alice', plus the book.

Alice Springs is the third largest town in the Northern Territory, Australia. The town straddles the usually dry Todd River on the northern side of the MacDonnell Ranges. The surrounding region is known as Central Australia, or the Red Centre, an arid environment consisting of several different deserts. In Alice Springs temperatures can vary dramatically with an average maximum temperature in summer of 35.6 °C (96.1 °F), and an average temperature in winter of 19.8 °C (67.5 °F), however it does get rather cold in the night during winter.

  5. Nice shots. It looks like they must have had rain then for water to be in the river and the bush looking green.
