Steve Back’s, Terra Incognita, is a series of aerial landscapes photographed in remote areas of Western Australia and South Australia, over the course of three years.

Most of the photographs are taken in famous Hutt Lagoon, world’s largest Beta Carotene farm. “The images are not manipulated for color,”, “I was commissioned to shoot some abstract landscape shots of Western Australia for a big Perth hotel. I chartered a light aircraft to explore shooting some islands off the coast of Northern WA. I had noticed these lakes on the map and Google Earth, and decided that they were worth a look. From the ground, the pink coloring is not so evident and a bit unimpressive, yet from the air, it looks fantastic. These are natural landscapes but the coloring is out of this world. And at first sight it is not easy to tell whether they are close up or far away.” said Back.
