Photographer's Note

This is the Southern Cross and Milky Way after 2,447 seconds have elapsed and half a bottle of vino consumed. I love sleeping out under the stars, especially in Australia, away from the light of cities and around the New Moon.

A swag is Australian slang for bedroll. There is a long history of swags and swagmen in this country, the swag being a symbol of freedom. Swagmen became well known during the Gold Rushes of the 1800s, when goldminers and itinerant workers hiked around the Outback, carrying very little and a light bedroll.
