Lots of people travel across Australia's Nullarbor Plain without realising what the name means. Null arbor means "no trees" although the actual part with no trees is just one part in South Australia.
This photo was taken on the way home from my recent trip to Western Australia on a day with massive dark clouds and storms out to sea. With the sun on the low shrubs of the plain it made for a great sight, especially with so many wild flowers in bloom.
The land is dead flat as far as the eye can see.

Hi Ian. Talk about the bleeding obvious and I thought it was some Aboriginal name with nulla in it.Fascinating scene, one I wouldn't have predicted having only seen shots of the Nullabors from the plane. Regards. Klaudio.

This certainly shows a clear view of an open Australian plain. And quite surprising too, I would have expected more desert like growth. This looks more like British moors to me, except that terrain is flat. Dark sky provides good background.
