Looking Out

Round Australia Road Trip #31

Mr ET tells me the optimum speed for best fuel consumption when towing our caravan is 100 km/hour. But 100km/hour is not great for taking photographs, and there’s no point in saying, “Stop! I want to take a photo of that!” because by the time we stop the subject of the photo is way back down the road.

So when we are travelling, I set my camera to sports mode. If I see something amazing, I point and shoot through the windscreen and hope for the best. Often the photos are blurred or crooked or I miss the subject altogether, but every now and then, I manage to get a decent photo.

Here are my favourite “Through the Windscreen” photos from our Round Australia Road Trip.
