Wilpena Pound

Late afternoon light firing up the countryside. Taken at Wilpena Pound, an stunning natural amphitheatre in the Flinders Ranges. The geology here is quite extraordinary.

Wonderful winter light!

Beautifully taken Marnie. Is that two walkers on the way up? If so that really gives such a good idea of the scale. We're heading that way in August - will have to check out how hard that walk is. :)

@onewing As you'd know the geology of Wilpena Pound is quite incredible and very complex, amazing place.

@pamknowler thanks Pam. Yes, it was a fantastic trip, full-on, and then some. Not counting our flight from Melbourne to Adelaide (654Km), we travelled 2500 Km in six days. 23 pax + tour director (and driver!) in luxury 50-seater coach so we could spread out at will. We'd travel all one day bar pit stops, arrive at Wilpena Pound/Coober Pedy/Uluru at dusk, have a whole day there, rolling by 7.30am next morning etc. The highlight of the trip, and reason for going on it, was the four-hour flight over Lake Eyre which is normally a huge flat salt-pan but is gradually filling with water from the floods in Queensland earlier this year. A very, very rare event!!! Donald Campbell broke the land speed record at Lake Eyre way back when.

Crikey eagle eyes, I dunno. Hadn't even spotted the possibility till you mention it. Had a look on the original and don't think so. Might be a jagged stump I think. When you're there do make sure to go out with someone who really does know about the wildlife and the incredible geology, an astonishing variety of rocks of varying ages, some very ancient indeed.

This is how I always imagine wilderness Australia.

Beautiful image and great light. It sounds like a very intense trip! And you thought Jordan was going to be too tiring! Unfortunately Australia is so far away that I must be satisfied with looking at the places on 365. Blessed 365!
