On New Years Eve day I took a day trip with my wife to Ellery Creek Water Hole in the West MacDonnell Ranges National Park. With the last jolt of energy from my camera’s battery I managed to capture the following images of a long-nosed water dragon (Lophignathus longirostris) that captured and ate a cockroach. These lizards are abundant and easy to observe at Ellery Creek.
I’ve not been doing very well at posting pictures everyday. I got busy with some writing projects, and I also got bored with photographing the same two geologic features everyday (i.e. Uluru and Kata-Tjuta). Luckily my wife showed up on 26 December to spend the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 with me. I have rented a cabin in Alice Springs and we drove to Alice on 27 December. Here’s a series of photos taken at the road houses along the Lasseter and Stuart Highways of Central Australia.
Unfortunately I forgot to bring my camera’s battery charger with my to Alice, I’ve got pictures from the 29th, 30th, and 31st. Unless I can find a way to charge my battery that will probably be it for 2014 until I return to the Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park on 7 January.
