Sogeri

The blue mountains behind Port Moresby are known as the Owen Stanley Ranges, it is home to the Koiari people. The grass lands in the foreground are home to the Grass Koiari people. Always pleasantly cooler than Moresby, it is a great place to get away for the weekend.

Photo taken 15 July 2007.
Gorgeous capture of the grass, and the mountains in the background :)

breath-taking - so beautiful. the low-laying clouds in the mountains are so wonderful.

Is that snow in the Mts or just the way the clouds have settled?

@kjarn - the Owen Stanleys do that so well!

@filsie65 @stuey - Thanks Phil and Stuey :)

@viranod - in the swamps nearby, there lives a big black python that the locals fear!

@agentzuckerguss - I do like the textures of this shot!

@peterdegraaff @robv @chriswang - thank you Chaps!

@beckys @httpgeffed @kimmistephens - thanks Ladies :)

@catsmeowb @tigerdreamer @emmaroobers - It is just the clouds draping the mountains... they talk about snow up on top of Mt Wilhelm, but they also say that hasn't happened for many a year.

@will_wooderson - Well I am glad I can share with you William.

@carolmw - Thanks Carol :)
