Photographer's Note

For more than a century, an extraordinary “ghost light” phenomenon steeped in folklore and genuine mystery has haunted a remote area centered near the town of Boulia, in South West Queensland. Hundreds of people over the years have told of seeing the Min Min Lights, a trio of ghostly lights, in the Boulia district. The light got its name from the old Min Min pub and mail exchange, which used to stand on the boundary of two big cattle stations -Warenda and Lucknow. Only a stack of bottles, a dust heap, and the remnants of a cemetery are all that now remain of Min Min.
Unfortunately, this is not so much the Min Min light as just some lens flare and reflections through the plane window as a red dawn cracked over the Queensland horizon; taken as I returned home from my most recent overseas trip.
I love traveling; there is nothing I would rather be doing, but the sight of the sun rising over the vast brown expanse of the Australian continent gives me an almost overwhelming sense of homecoming.
