The Quiet Hero – Camel Treks Australia Photographic Tour

Camel Treks Australia – The Cook – Susan


[p]I would like to take this moment to thank Susan Pearl who is such a quiet achiever and a hero. I have just arrived back from Camel Treks Australia Photographic Tour in the Finders Ranges and Susan was the cook for the 3 days that this Tour took place. Others are longer tours.[/p] [p[Susan cooked the most amazing food over hot coals, in the flames of the open fire, all in camp overs and using the huts fire place as well. [/p] [p]I have no idea how Susan did this but it was simply sensational. I’m a hopeless cook, useless actually and to see someone like Susan weave her magic was unreal. Watching Susan she looked like she as in slow motion, nothing seems to phase her although she tells me that she wasn’t that laid back at all.She said to me” Pete you know who you see a duck swiming, above the water they all looked composed, but their feet under the water are paddling frantically, well that’s me” [/p] [p]It’s alot of work and cooking for this large  group was an epic effort and Susan I want to thank you for all that you did. You kept the crew so well fed and it wasn’t just how you went about your task that blew me away, it was also the type of food that you cooked. Such a wide variety of food and the menus were simply awesome . Bush tucker on the camp fire , eating around the campfire is one of the strengths of camping and your cooking enhanced that.[/p] [p]Well done Susan, you did an epic job and I know that all  others were blown away as well.[/p]

If anyone is looking for an awesome cook to cook for you or your group then Susan is the person for you. Simply awesome bush tucker. Well done Susan.:):)















[p] Susan Pearl you are an absolute legend!!

Pete's photography is self taught. As a young child photography was an interest. His passion for the varying landscapes of Oz comes from frequent visits as a youngster, to his Gandparent's sheep farm in Barmera, a small country town in South Australia. Pete Dobré is a Freelance Photographer who blazes the trail for 6 months each year, capturing awe-inspiring images. Pete's work expresses his creative flair, emotions and love for the natural scapes of Australia. He remembers the hot day when he was 8, leaving town for the farm. His parents had an old car. Within about 2 kilometres of reaching the farm gate, they were bogged on a small red sand dune. The flies were buzzing continuously and the heat was beating down. Sticks, leaves and branches were wedged under the back tyres, to get the car moving. His mum was in a panic but Pete thought that it was exciting. From that moment he knew that he loved being out in creation, with the sense of adventure in the wild. This is where Pete's passion began. Photography for Pete is an expressive means for visual communication. He says, 'There is never a boring moment in my work. There is always something to photograph and I love being creative. The only limit to creativity is a lack of creativity.' Pete's aim as a photographer is to present images that provoke and stimulate the mind, to capture God's awesome creation and to share this with others. If Pete can do a little justice to God's creativity, then he is quietly satisfied. As a photographer Pete's inspiration and passion for his work comes from knowing God who created everything in the beginning. Knowing God, the Creator gives more substance and meaning to what he captures on film. Pete sees his role as freezing a moment in time and history which will never be repeated exactly the same again. The light, clouds and seasons will always be different. Pete's love for natural conditions at different times of the day, displaying varying moods and cloud formations makes his work very special and eye catching.
