The drought can kill anything. Taken in the inland part of northern Western Australia. Literally 100 miles from anywhere. Not a place you'd want to get the car stuck.

    Brian Matiash said (3 Jan 2010):

    The shot is so good, it's not even funny. Is this an HDR image? It has some qualities of one.

    What makes this shot so poignant for me is that I just finished reading 'In a Sunburned Country' by Bill Bryson, a travelogue about his travels around Australia. This shot really helps me visualize a lot of what Bryson wrote about.
