Australian photographer Julie Fletcher, triggered by failed relationship, had decided 12 years ago to quit her job and the city life to follow her burning passion. Her passion has been to explore and capture the magnificent and picturesque landscapes of the remote Australian outback. And nope, not for days, but years!
‘GRAVEYARD’ Menindee Lake New South Wales
Since embracing the wilderness lifestyle, living in one the most hostile environments on earth, Fletcher has not turned her back on her passion. And the result was an impressive collection of stunningly award-wining images of pristine nature. Yes, she has won several awards for her work, notably as a finalist in 2013 National Geographic Nature Competition with over 8000 entries. Her finalist photo with eerie landscape she titled Graveyard (above) has been published by National Geographic, GEO France, Business Insider, NY Daily News, among others. The photo looks surreal and out of this world. But the fact is — it’s real… and amazing!
