Delightful, shy beautiful animals with captivating eyes. Alpacas originated from Peru and the modern Australian industry started in the late 1980s. Today there would be about 100,000 animals being bred and used for their very fine fleece. There is an extensive range of associations, shows and outlets selling alpaca goods. Nikon D300, f13, 1/640s, 142mm zoom equiv, ISO 400.

Cope Hut was built as a refuge ski hut in about 1929 by the Ski Club of Victoria. The hut has a rough adzed timber frame and now polished hardwood floor with a corrugated iron roof. Materials came via Dibbins Hut by dray then by sled to the High Plains. The hut was classified by the National Trust in 1988. There is an efficient slow combustion stove and solid bunks for up to 16 persons. A separate firewood room makes this one of the most warmest huts during winter. Some magnificent stands of snowgums have escaped recent bushfires. Nikon D80, f13, 1/200sec, 16mm focal length equiv., ISO 800

This approaching storm was to bring more than 40mm of rain to a normally dry part of the continent. Central Australia has experienced several consecutive years of well above average rainfall leading to Lake Eyre being filled for the first time in recent history. In this picture we see wildflowers are in bloom after previous rain. They extended for hundreds of kilometres through the desert. After this storm, many tracks and roads were impassable for days and weeks. Note the small spider at the bottom of the image. Nikon D80, f6.3, 1/160sec, 16mm focal length equiv., ISO 160
