Aerial view of Bowen River Rodeo, north west of Mackay, Queensland, Australia. Taken is June 1991, using negs. I have scanned this 8X12 print from one of my original portfolios. There was time minor touching up done with photoshop, mainly to correct dust and scratches that were a trademark of negs!

    Awesome. What a glorious scene.

  • Thanks Don! You will have to come and see it for yourself one day – it is in North Queensland, south west of Bowen (where they filmed some of the movie “Australia”!, at Bowen, not at the rodeo!) :)) Worth the chopper ride!

    Great shot and lots of details in the enlarged view. Lucky you to get the chance of the chopper rides.

  • Ta Kasia! Yes, love my chopper rides and have been a very lucky girl to be able to have lots of flights in lots of different choppers, in lots of different locations! I love choppers! I feel they are safer than planes, myself!! :))))

    Nice work. Lovely to have this as Bowen has started to expand somewhat. Congratulations on your feature.

  • Thanks Sonia!! This is a fair way out of Bowen, actually closer to Collinsville, (south west). Bowen is a lovely place and has some great pubs!! :)) Or it used to, presuming it still does! Wasn’t one of their pubs used in the movie “Australia”? It has been years since I have been up there…. would love to get up there again! :)))) Roadtrip??!!
