Default Central Australia - the colours of the land

G'day all

At the moment we're travelling through central Australia, the largest town here is Alice Springs with a pop of about 25,000
After days & days of mixed cloud the weather has been kind, and my spirits have responded to the location

Ormiston Gorge is a popular place to visit - it's about 140km west of Alice and a great place to spend a day ... or 3. Walks in & around the place are plentiful, best times are before 10am & after 3pm ~ great shadows and the light bouncing off one side of the gorge lights up the other face

here's a few images

1- the floor or the gorge as you first arrive - with the cliffs towering 75 - 100metres above you

exif= Panny G2, 1/320s x f5,6; 14-140 lens @ 14mm; iso-100

2- one of several large pools along the gorge - we're now about 1km up the gorge from pic #1

exif= Panny G2, 1/100s x f4,8; 14-140 lens @ 45mm; iso-500; WB = Shade

3- as you walk the gorge, the cliffs appear above you, along with the brilliant colours of sky & earth

exif= Panny G2, 1/320s x f7,1; 14-140 lens @ 30mm; iso-100

4- trees cling to the cliff-tops and often the cliff-faces

exif= Panny G2, 1/320s x f5,6; EV=-0,7; 14-140 lens @ 140mm; iso-100

5- one of many sights for sore eyes as you walk the gorge

exif= Panny G2, 1/320s x f5,6; EV+-0.7; 14-140 lens @ 140mm; iso-125

All images pp'd slightly with Levels & Curves

Hope you've enjoyed them

nice work, Phil... looks like a lovely place to walk around with a camera! really like the second one, though i confess, i'm biased toward images with water... but the pool does add a lot to the image. very nice!

Out where the rivers like to run, I stand alone, and take back something worth remembering...
