This photo was taken just north of Thomas No 1 Oil Well.

Cresting a large dune, these 2 cleared shot lines stand out like a beacon in the desert. The only reason why they are still visible after all these years is that they were put through a very large grove of Gidgee, making the cleared lines still visible from many kilometres away.
