This a real challenge, since our Australian winters are generally not very much different to our summers! However in July 2009 we walked with a group of writers in Central Australia. Winter in the desert brings freezing nights and hot days. We arrived in Alice Springs on the weekend of the annual Beanie Festival, so members of our group were sporting their new beanies.
This is my first attempt at merging images in PS, quite exciting to learn a new skill on the last day of the year. Here are some untouched images of us on a cold desert morning around the campfire at Ipolera.
