AUSTRALIA 2013 #43

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
The wide straight roads in the Australian bush get suddenly narrow for some river crossing. When you notice a plume of dust in the distance, you better stop while you can and let the road train go past. Those trucks go fast, are very heavy and would not be able to stop in time. The result would be the end of your trip……and life.




A huge Thank you to Richard Shuttleworth (DicksPics) for his User Award

Very cool. I'll have to dig up a pic I took of a triple trailer truck I spotted in Utah in the US.

Quite a sight, but at a distance for preference. I've just viewed large and it's quite frightening.
