Colors of Australian Outback

The colours of Australian Outback are rich and vivid, somewhat unexpected in the harsh environment of the arid landscape. Rolling dunes of orange sand set against the background of clear blue sky, peppered with splashes of green vegetation. And when the rain does come to the desert it usually does so in spectacular summer storms.

The rare planetary alignment: Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Mercury. Mars is not quite visible on the photo though...The astronomical phenomenon is unlikely to occur again before 2040.
