”CLOUD porn” rolling in over the Tanami Desert is one of the most beautiful sights in the world, amateur photographer Glenn Smith says.
Mr Smith works on a mine site in the red centre, and snapped this photo on March 10 about 4pm while on a break. “It’s the Australian outback at its finest,” he said.
“It’s open, barren and flat — very isolated and very remote.”
Mr Smith is originally from Sydney and said the Territory’s flat, open landscapes made him pick up a camera when he moved. “It’s so open, so you have free range — there’s no buildings in the way,” he said.
“I’m in the middle of nowhere … Sydney has nothing on this.”
Mr Smith said the Territory’s beautiful nature kept him taking photos.
“I like capturing nature — the sunsets, the sunrises, the storms, the wildlife,” he said.
“Our country is the best.”
