Rescanned Kodachrome 25 35mm transparency, which is starting to fade a little after 46 years of 'not perfect' storage. This image was made in 1966, in the Flinders Ranges in outback South Australia.


Pentax S1a SLR with 55mm f1.8 Super Takumar lens.


Early breakfast campfire smoke in Flinder's Pound at a bush camp, Outback South Australia, Easter 1966. Only dirt and gravel 'tracks' served the area in those years. Notwithstanding, it was a popular destination for the more intrepid. Easter (autumn) was a good time to visit. Although the image may suggest the full story, actually smelling the campfire smoke and burning eucalyptus leaves, and hearing the cries of parrots in the trees, would be necessary for the full experience ... or being there. :-)
