From a rain-soaked earth life unfurls in a carpet of green that jostles, crowds and pushes up to sky. The sun bakes and the fires come to scorch the landscape into colours of black, midnight blue and the dusting of pale ashes. The arid interior of Australia is alive in the extremes of the seasons. Michelle brings this to life between the wet and the ashen ground, following her recent travels throughout the Northern Territory.

Pool of the deepest part

In the shadow of the low escarpment that defines a narrow rocky valley in Watarrka, is Kathleen Springs. A small cool corner of retreat from the dry heat of central Australia. The pool is dark and its depths reach deep within my mind. Nothing stirs, but for a slight ripple of a breeze. Here I claim stillness within me and I breath.
