  • Flight from William Creek

    A beautiful sunrise as one of Wrights Air planes takes off for a flight over Lake Eyre

  • The Painted Hills

    I must confess, I think this was the highlight of the Lake Eyre area for me. The Anna Creek Painted Hills, previously called the Secret Painted Hills, are a spectacular and recently discovered section of the pristine Breakaways country in the far north of South Australia. Anna Creek Painted Hills is a rocky outcrop of large and small hills, which emerge suddenly out of a flat, desert landscape. The hills are approximately 20 kilometres x 18 kilometres in size. It is believed that the Anna Creek Painted Hills are the leftover effects of 50 million years of climate change, with the climate going from glacial to wet and semi-tropical over million of years. The changing colours of the hills are believed to be a result of oxidisation. The deep red is due to the oxidation of iron in the rocks, while the white sections are where iron has leached away.

  • Silverband Falls

    This photo was taken yesterday, when it was very cold, rainy and even snowing in the Grampians. The Silverband Falls are waterfalls located in the Grampians National Park, in western Victoria, Australia. Fed by Dairy Creek, the horsetail falls are characterised by a narrow band of water that tumbles over a small rock face and then disappears into a rocky base. The creek re-emerges some 50 metres west of the falls. Early European visitors to the falls named it Silverband because of its narrow stream of water.

  • little Critter

    We found this little critter when we landed at the Painted Hills on Anna Creek Station. It couldn't have beem much bigger than about 10cm. I don't know what it is, but it looks a bit like a gecko. It is again amazing to see how well camouflaged it is.

    This is a composite photo I played with. This young man's action made me realise why they send young men to war. It's because they think they are invincible and immortal. This group of young men were jumping of the cliff here into a pool full of rocks, without even thinking about it.
