We found it a place of extremes, extreme isolation, extreme weather, extreme contrast with colour and light, and extremes in landscape from the raw nature to giant machines you'd expect to see on Mars. We were given a fantastic tour of the BHP site which also involved wearing long sleeve high visibility gear, hard hat and protective glasses. I think Adam secretly enjoyed being back amongst the engineers. It was 36 degrees and very humid when we visited. Luckily the tour vehicle had aircon so we would leap outside to have a look and take photos and leap back in the car to recover and drink another 8 litres of water. We arrived just after some rain and so there were small pockets of grass growing on the iron ore.
Note: the train above was named 'Garden'
We will release further images from the exhibition once it has opened tomorrow at the Courthouse Gallery.
