January 2020 Photo Challenge - Entries (Please Post them here)

The Topic this month is ‘A Typical Australian Experience’

Reminders ...
* This thread is only for posting your entry, together with any comments/explanation/details you'd like to issue concerning your own photo.
[sometimes this may help sway the judges]
* comments on other peoples' entries, or any "other" shots of your own you'd like to share, can be posted in the Comments and Rejects Thread -> HERE.
* only one entry (that's just one image) per person (but you can change it out at any time if you get a better one)
* the image must be your own work and
* all other normal forum rules, and image size limits, apply.

The image doesn't necessarily have to be taken this month, but in the spirit of the challenge, we encourage you to get out and engage with it.
In this regard, YES, the image may be one that you have previously posted, unless of course it has already been voted a previous photo challenge winner.

The winner of the public vote, which will be run at the end of the month, will get to choose next month's topic and have their photo added to our "Photo Challenge Hall of Fame".

Good Luck!

Uluru Sunset

A wonderful Aussie Experience:
Watching the changing colours of Uluru at Sunset (with the moon rising in the background)
with a camera in one hand and a glass of champagne in the other.
I'd do it every day if I could.

The Spirit of Australia

An Australian experience is seeing Mendoowoorrji bathed in an Australian sunset.

The B737-800 aircraft wearing "Mendoowoorrji" livery is the fourth aircraft in Qantas' flying art series, inspired by the work of late West Australian Aboriginal painter, Paddy Bedford.
The artwork on the B737-800 is an interpretation of the 2005 painting "Medicine Pocket" which captures the essence of Mendoowoorrji, Paddy Bedford's mother's country in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia.

As Aussie as a summer bushfire.

From devastating bushfires on Kangaroo Island, we see tremendous beauty as well. We live in paradise.

Took this pic back in the early 1970's at Yamba, NSW. I'm sure a lot of Australians can relate to this who grew up in the decades before and after this period. Ah, memories.
