Playas, creekbeds, dunes, hills. The interior of Australia was popularly referred to in the nineteenth century as "the ghastly blank." It remains in reality a harsh land, but one of extraordinary beauty and breath-taking diversity.

Beautiful scenery and plants. Not bad looking sand, either :). So how large is your collection of sand samples these days?

Very modest by the international arenophile standards! And I really don't know - I was trying to catch up with the un-catalogued plastic bags before I left to work take up this job, and there have been quite a few sands added by myself and my battalions of arenokleptomaniacal friends over the last eighteen months. I would guess 500+ - I'll get them all organised when I'm back in the UK, I'm sure I will....
