Day 17 - Lightning Ridge

Day 17 was a ‘recovery day’ spent in and around Lightning Ridge after our 700km drive to get here.

It’s an interesting place - eclectic; dusty but attractive; reputedly one of the poorest towns in NSW; beautiful and clear light. It seems that places with such clear light attract many artists. It is the same with Broken Hill. Plenty of tragedy and hard, physical work and plenty of artists as well.

The first half of the photos were taken in the grounds of the B&B in which we stayed. The second half were taken near Stanley the Emu on the Castlereagh Highway 10km out from ’the Ridge’.
