Termite Mound Black and White

The Northern Territory is an extreme environment. The climate is harsh; the wildlife is dangerous. The people who have survived here before modern development and technology are truly warriors, because this environment can kill you quickly — whether it’s through heatstroke or dehydration, a snake bite or a croc attack.

While looking through my Northern Territory photos, I realized how much black and white suited this stark environment — even at Uluru, famous for its colors. A photo essay therefore would be in order!

Here are my favorite shots of the Northern Territory in black and white:

Uluru Camel Ride Black and White

The view from atop a camel at Uluru, just before sunset.

Twin Falls Black and White

As the first boat out to Twin Falls in Kakadu National Park, I enjoyed perfect reflections in the glass-like water.

Snarling Croc Black and White

Burt the crocodile gets ready to pounce at Crocosaurus Cove in Darwin.

Mindil Beach, Black and White

Darwinites head to Mindil Beach and scope out the best spot to catch the sunset.

Uluru Black and White

Uluru in the distance — not the typical colorful image you see.

Kate at Buley Rockhole

I go for a dip at Buley Rockhole at Litchfield National Park.

Mary River Black and White

Crocs lurk just beneath the surface at the Mary River Wetlands.

Baby Turtle Black and White

A baby turtle tries to make himself as inconspicuous as possible at Crocosaurus Cove.

Mindil Beach Sunset Black and White

A colorless sunset at Mindil Beach in Darwin — still ominous and dramatic.

Kakadu National Park Black and White

The view over the floodplains at Kakadu National Park, one of the roughest and wildest places I’ve ever been.

Fire Dancer Black and White

A fire dancer enthralls the crowd at the Mindil Beach Markets in Darwin.

Walpa Gorge Black and White

The loneliness of the Australian Outback — an empty bench in Walpa Gorge at Kata Tjuta.

  1. Beautiful photos! I love the baby turtle, just for being cute and I like the fire dancer because its hard to get a good fire dancer shot. Mine have always been terrible!

  2. Australia is such a wonderful country to live in. It’s a country filled with nature’s gift. It’s one of my must-visit countries. I guess seeing what they offer in black and white makes want to live there more. Thanks for providing these beautiful images, Kate.

  3. Hi Kate! All of these photos are beautiful. My two favorites are the crocodile and the cowboy…very rustic. Thanks for sharing and look forward to your next post.
