asutralian outback during drought desert plains

Outback Queensland IMG 8947 - From the top of sand dunes in western Queensland the view is of vast treeless plains that stretch to the distant horizon. This is an arid region where rainfall is minimal and sporadic, but during a devasting drought, when this photo was taken, it seemed as though the region was in danger of becoming one of the world's great deserts.
