Where wide expanses of flat land are surprisingly green following recent heavy rains.
Where recreational lakes have been created by pumping water from deep under the ground. The water smells and tastes like metal and leaves rust stains on the sides of houses where sprinklers have sprayed.
Where the spare tyres for mining trucks are delivered on huge road trains.
Where the endless bright blue sky is only interrupted by the pink and grey flurry of a galah calling to its partner.
PS I have just cleaned my lens… sigh.
