Sometimes after work I like to drive up the track behind the art centre to immerse myself in the vastness of the #greatsandydesert . It helps me remember what is important in life 🌚🌔🌙🌞✨⚡️🔥🌩

The walk from accom to gym this morning at 6am 😍👌🏽 beautiful and peaceful start to the morning

A Great Sandy Desert sunset!
A bit of smoke from a distant fire, some nice cloud structure and a young Dingo created a nice scene recently in the Great Sandy Desert in Western Australia. Have a great weekend!

Australia Gravity Waves .

On October 17, 2017, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite captured this image of an unusual cloud pattern off the coast of southern Australia. .

Clouds appear to be streaming out from a cold front, indicated by the dark blue line on a weather map published that day by Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology (BOM). But according to the BOM, the pattern is caused by a phenomenon in the atmosphere called “gravity waves.” Similar to a boat’s wake, which forms as water is pushed upward by the boat and pulled downward again by gravity, these clouds are formed by the rise and fall of air columns. As the wave moves along the cloud band, the wave peaks appear cloudy and the troughs appear cloud-free. In this case, the gravity waves developed as a result of instability on the flank of a strong jet stream moving ahead of the cold front.  The gravity waves are the atmosphere’s way of restoring balance, and they usually don’t last for lengthy periods. .

Great Sandy evenings #greatsandydesert #WA

Today’s (November 16th) weather images for Australia.  I really enjoy looking at weather images from all around the world, and I love that we get the whole of Australia in these images.  Very striking for us Yanks!

First image:  Clouds from infrared image combined with static colour image of surface.

Second image:  False-colour infrared image with colour-coded temperature ranges and map overlay.

Third image:  Raw infrared image with map overlay.
And now your local weather:
A broad low pressure trough over the east of the continent connects with a

surface low over western Victoria. A middle level cloud band stretches from

southeastern Queensland through eastern New South Wales wrapping around the low.  Areas of thunderstorms can be seen, mainly along the trough.
There is thunderstorm activity over the Northern Territory and northern Western Australia near another surface trough.
A middle level cloudband and embedded thunderstorms are moving across southwest Western Australia ahead of a cold front.

Australia NDVI .

Normalized Differential Vegetation Index, or NDVI, is one of the most successful image processing methods used to simply and quickly identify vegetated areas and their "condition," and it remains the most well-known and used index to detect live green plant canopies in multispectral remote sensing data. Typically vegetation “condition” refers to the vegetation vigor or health. .

The NDVI is calculated from the spectral reflectance measurements acquired in the red (visible) and near-infrared regions, respectively. .

In general, if there is much more reflected radiation in near-infrared wavelengths than in visible wavelengths, then the vegetation in that pixel is likely to be dense and may contain some type of forest. .

The output pixel values range from -1.0 to +1.0, with strong reflectance from vegetation being in the +0.5 to +1.0 range.  In the satellite map, the yellow and green areas represent vegetation, with the green representing the most heavily (and healthy) vegetated areas…probably forest. The brown shades in the map represent sparse vegetation or very dry areas such as desert.  The map represents the monthly NDVI average for October 2017 for Australia.  More green should appear in the coming months as Australia transitions from spring to summer. .

There’s nothing like letting it all hang out...😂
Wild Australian Dingo pup photographed in the Great Sandy Desert, Western Australia.

Who me? Yes you! I came across these Preying Mantis recently who had spent the night waiting to capture the insects that were attracted to the light above them. I loved the way they were standing as the sun started coming up so framed my image to have the second Mantis set in the background creating some more interest in the image. This is another macro image but with a very different technique to the recent ant images.
Have a good one.
Gaz✌️😎

These super green desert ants really know how take a fly apart in no time at all!!
I still haven’t found a common name for these ants(Calomyrmex) which I have been photographing in the Great Sandy Desert in Western Australia but in any case they are really striking and fun to spend time with. If you check out My Story you will see what happens when red desert sand and lenses come together....😬😬

Brilliant green desert ant (Calomyrmex).
Yes I’ve graduated from bird photography all the way down to ants!😛😛 How could I not go past these ants I found in the Great Sandy Desert in Western Australia without trying to show others that some of the smallest things on this planet are just as beautiful as the biggest. If you look at my live vid from this morning you will see me attempting to photograph them.😎✌️

Dingo pup with mum always watching....
Every time I photograph these wild Dingo pups up in the Great Sandy Desert in Western Australia you can just about guarantee mum is always watching me and the pups closely!

We ❤️the show #betterhomesandgardens and we've spent a many weekend recreating their creativity. But after the past intense year we have run out of energy and inspiration. This is a clip from the video we sent to @bhgaus to ask them for some help getting more purpose into and less work from our garden. At the moment all we do every weekend is mowing, weeding and cleaning up and we actually never really sit and enjoy the garden. Plus what is there to do with that massive #greatsandydesert that's our front yard? @jasonhodgesbhg we need your help! #homeimprovement #gardening #greathandeyecoordination #cricketskills #gardeningisfun

Viewing Australia's Great Sandy Desert From Space

Flying hundreds of miles above, astronauts aboard the International Space Station photographed Lake Hazlett and Lake Willis in Western Australia's Great Sandy Desert. Hundreds of ephemeral salt lakes are peppered throughout the arid Australian Outback. When occasional flood waters pour into the lakebeds and then evaporate, they leave salt mineral deposits and create bright, expansive layers that are readily visible from space, as seen in this image taken by the Expedition 52 crew on the station.

The reddish-brown linear sand dunes are slightly higher in elevation (5 to 10 feet, 1.5 to 3 meters) and align with the general east to west wind flow in the region. Approximately 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of the lakes lies Lake Mackay, the fourth largest salt lake in Australia.

Lake Hazlett and Lake Willis

An astronaut aboard the International Space Station shot this photograph of Lake Willis and Lake Hazlett while flying over the Great Sandy Desert in Western #Australia.

Hundreds of ephemeral salt lakes are peppered throughout the arid Australian Outback. When occasional flood waters pour into the lakebeds and then evaporate, they leave salt mineral deposits and create bright, expansive layers (evaporite deposits) that are readily visible from space. The reddish-brown linear sand dunes are slightly higher in elevation (1.5 to 3 meters, 5 to 10 feet) and align with the general east to west wind flow in the region.

Approximately 32 kilometers (20 miles) south of the lakes lies the fourth largest salt lake in Australia: Lake Mackay. The Pintubi tribe and other Australian Aborigine survived around these lakes for thousands of years in what is now called the Kiwirrkurra Community.

Waterhole in the late afternoon on the Telfer Mine Road Western Australia. Saw a few along the way most likely dug out many years ago when the roads were being built. They now provide a vital source of water to local birds and wildlife.

A wild pure Dingo pup photographed in the Great Sandy Desert, Western Australia. Those eyes just make your heart melt don’t they....

#KumpayaGirgirba and her family were among the last Australian Aboriginal people to have avoided permanent contact with a colonised Australia.
Kumpaya Girgirba was born near #Kiwirrkurra (described as the most remote community in Australia) and walked all around that area with her family as a young girl until, in the 1960s, "The whitefellas took the family to #Jigalong, ending the pujiman [traditional] days." Some 40 years later, Kumpaya can name the exact location of the water sources and landscape features which she represents in her paintings, from her country in the #GreatSandyDesert. Kumpaya is a treasured member of the @martumiliartists community.

Spinifex Pigeon just chillin.
I’ve found birds like this one that I photographed out in the Western Australian desert are super hard to sneak up on due to the fact that they rarely see humans therefore disappear into the spinifex as soon as you go near them. I had to camo up and wait for this one to venture reasonably close to get an image I like!
