Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre National Park is in the Outback region of South Australia. The park is huge and has an area of 13,488.37 km 2 (5,207.89 sq mi), about the size of several tiny European countries, but with very little human impacts. ?The largely dried out lake is an unusual place that captures the imagination of many people, especially those of landscape and aerial photographers. The best way to see the stunning array of colours, textures and geographical patterns of this place with the colonies of pelicans in the waters below is from the air using a small plane.

Robin Yong is a multi-award winning Travel Photographer. He enjoys traveling to exotic destinations to befriend and photograph the locals. He is best known for his work on the Omo Valley tribes in Ethiopia, the Venetian Masked models in Venice, the Bokator boxers of Cambodia and the Maikos of Kyoto. He calls these works his Travel Portraits, his Art of Travel Medicine. For most of his works, he does not use flash, reflectors or artificial lighting, depending solely on natural lighting alone. The photos are often dramatic, colourful and extremely beautiful.
