Ken Duncan (OAM) is one of the world’s leading exponents of panoramic landscape photography and spends much of his life traveling to remote and exotic locations.
Australian born photographer Ken Duncan (OAM) captures the rich ochre reds of the outback, the turquoise blue of the sea and shadowed greens of the rainforest.
This is a classic scene of the vegetation of the “Red Centre” of Australia. The oaks pictured here are incredibly biologically adapted to the harsh arid conditions of this landscape. When climatic conditions get really dry, the trees drop their leaves totally and the leaves form a natural mulch which traps water to feed the trees´ root systems. In this shot, the last rays of sunlight are striking Uluru and the trunks of the Desert Oaks. The spinifex grass in the foreground is home to numerous species of animal life, which seek shelter deep within the dense vegetation from the stifling heat. Although the grass appears soft, it is quite prickly and sharp. Resin from these grasses was used by the native Aboriginal as a glue or bonding material, strengthening their spearheads.
