Australian vehicles

An ore shifting truck in the neighbor of Coober Pedy.

A mining vehicle with Bieb as scale model.

A road train. And than imagine that I made in 2004 still pictures on film and had an olympus C3030 digital camera with 3.3 megapixel resolution on board as second camera. For internet purposes still excellent today.

5 opmerkingen:

  1. Ha! That first vehicle, especially, looks like something out of the movie Star Wars.

    1. Funny you say that. The moviemakers used this part of the world to shoot some parts of star wars and you found still some abandoned vehicles of that movie in the desert. ( I have a picture from one but decided not to place it.). It looks also as an inspirational well for the mad max movies.

  2. Great minds think alike. Road Warrior came to my mind. It was number 2 in the Mad Max movies.

  3. My thought viewing these were the same as the first two comments. Nice that you got to go there. Show more.

  4. I remember looking at the surface mines from the air on a flight from Alice Springs to Cairns many years ago. The scale was unimaginable.
