Spring Days in the Flinders Ranges can be idyllic or windy and unpleasant.

Dust storms aren’t unusual and days when raised dust leaves a a grey pall hanging in the air aren’t exactly ideal for photography – like the other day.

A full blown rolling dust storm is a spectacular event..

White outs can be moderate like the one above or thicker like the one I photographed during the drought several years ago.

Whatever the intensity, it wipes out almost all colour from the landscape so for the image above I had to rely on the sun which was directly in front of the camera silhouetting the Mt Deception Range near Leigh Creek.

Without the little hillock with the tuft of trees, the composition would have been sadly lacking.
