Me - Going down on an electric winch, hand-built by a miner, while working on my "Underland" story in the Australian outback. The 45-second journey through a tunnel 1 metre in diameter seemed like an eternity. There are only just a couple of spotlights at the entrance shaft, and walking around with a torch in the complete darkness feels like a labyrinth that doesn't lead you anywhere . But the miners know that opal is there somewhere - they just have to find it.

A very fun piece of Coober Pedy, Australia Opal. 28 grams.

Coober Pedy... the most amazing place in Oz! Moon-like landscapes... buildings underground or in hills... holes and tunnels everywhere... earthen heaps... water that you have to buy... and mines all over the place! ⛰🕌🕯

So ends another day on the road. Greetings from Coober Pedy! #kangacoachlines #cooberpedy #lifepostqbr #stormyskies #stormyskiesbutnorain

Coober Pedy, the world premiere centres for Opal, and a place where people live underground to escape the heat and cold. Dusty and hot, but much better than you expect. #streetart #cooberpedy #outback

Day 4; we drove for 5/6 hours through the desert on a straight road- saw many a worse for wear kangaroos on the roadside 😢 but eventually made it to this cool little opal mining town where bars, hotels, restaurants etc are all underground! Gonna go find myself a pretty opal 💎💎 #cooberpedy #mining #opal #town #outback #southaustralia #roadtrip #stuarthighway #desert #kangaroo #emu #dingo #sunset #driving #townview #travel #outbackaussie #backpacker #campervan #vanlife
