Outback Australia: Eye-Catching, Searing, Unique, Startling Pictures

Julie Fletcher

Here is depicted an inspiring story of a woman who quit her toxic relationship and city life, to move to a remote town, in Outback Australia, which has but one Pub.

Now she takes some of the most magical photographs of Australia you’ll ever see. She’s done what many people can only dream of, ditching her mundane office job to travel long-term around Australia with just a Camera for company.


First Light: Julie Fletcher captured this photograph of Uluru, which is a bright red colour, showing off blue hues.

Julie Fletcher left Sydney and city life behind 12-years ago and hasn’t looked back since, even after getting stranded in the South Australia outback 200km from civilisation. Now the photographer has thousands of stunning and unique photos of the country’s most remote and less frequented landscapes to show for it. The 42-year-old said Photography helped transform her after a difficult relationship.

Pathway of Light:

Taken in Lake Eyre in remote South Australia, this incredible photograph shows the planet Venus and a sky full of stunning stars. The image  has made her a finalist in this year’s David Malin Awards for  astrophotography.

  Red Centre: When she first left the city life Fletcher spent three months in the centre of Australia capturing sensational images of Ayers rock in the Northern Territory such as Nightscape.

In The Fog: Taken in the Great Otway National Park, also known as the Otways or  the Otway Ranges,


Loner: A flock of Black Swans were captured flying over the Flinders Ranges, the largest mountain range in South Australia

  The Pound: This photograph, showcasing Mt Ohlssen in the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, is one of Fletcher’s best-selling and favourite images.

Graveyard: This eerie scene was shot at Menindee Lake in far west New South  Wales, and was published in the French National Geographic in May. Fletcher says the ‘surreal milky green water is a natural phenomenon caused by electromagnetic activity from the lightning hitting the water’s surface’

Julie Fletcher captured this photograph of Uluru, which is a bright red colour, showing off blue hues.  She insists this is the exact colour the rock was when she snapped the shot.






  Delicious Light: Taken in a remote location in mid-north South  Australia.

 Fletcher has an incredible signature style, as seen in River Gum snapped in  Brachina Gorge in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia.
