Edge of The Outback

I have just returned from a 3 week sabbatical. I taught 22 North American Students some aspects of digital photography, after a brief introduction, to photography in general. We then spent time in several National Parks in Northern Victoria and South Western N.S.W. The program ran for 3 weeks, and I was often spending upwards of 12 hours a day in the filed with students and 10 hours a day in the labs helping them finish their folios.I plan on writing a lengthy reflection and posting it to my website, in the coming days.
