Australia, Featured, Photo of the Week

Week In-stagram Review Northern Territory

2 Comments 30 May 2014

Each week brings some new scenery and location for me – that’s just the way I like it. If you want to follow where I am real time – then on Friday I will post some of my Instagram photos from the current week. Some weeks I may be traveling somewhere exotic, and some weeks it may be less interesting – but it will give you a peek into my life of perpetual motion.

This week is actually not this week – it is last week.  Confused?  I am too when I’m jetlagged!  This week I actually flew about 38 hours in total from Darwin Australia to Sydney to LA to NYC – no wonder why I’m confused!  Actually many of these Instagram pics are from last week because I was waiting to get approval to use them.  The part that you probably don’t know about Uluru in Northern Territory Australia is that as a photographer who does editorial, I have to actually get permission to take and use photos of the sacred sights of Uluru, and Kata Tjuta.  There is an extensive set of rules on what I can and can’t take photos of and how I can use them – so last week I was unable to bring you an update becuase my pictures were being reviewed – and mainly rejected.  However I did get a couple approved to show you this week!

My last two weeks were full of glamping and hiking around Australia’s Red Centre and sacred sites of Uluru, Kata Tjuta, and Kings Canyon.  I also spent some time getting up close and personal with desert animals, as well as floating above the outback in Alice Springs.  I flew up to  Darwin to visit friends for a few days, and then returned to NYC after 3 months of travel.  The return to NYC marks my third time going literally around the world in my travels.  Not too shabby for someone who just got a passport when they were 30 years old!

Enjoy the Northern Territory on Instagram!

Kings Canyon Rim hike

My fear of heights didn’t like this part of the rim walk but it was worth it for a gorgeous view over Kings Canyon!

 

Stuart Highway Australia

The Stuart Highway in Australia. From Darwin to Port Augusta (north to South thru the central interior) 1761 miles of outback. Lots of red sand, and lots of kangaroos. Loved the wide open spaces of @ausoutbacknt !
