Mumbulla Sacred Pool - Biamanga National Park
Celebration: countdown 29

In the soft pink granite of the gorge, a creek cascades through a series of falls and pools. To the left of the top fall is a curious structure, almost as though someone has carved a rising eagle or hawk (Mullin or Munyunga in the Yuin language) into the wall of the fall.
As tempting as the water looked, as a sign of respect to the elders, i resisted the urge to swim here.

The structure on the side of the waterfall (perhaps an eagle or hawk known to attack humans) brings to mind a Yuin dream-time story from this part of Australia.

The story tells how a pair of young women were abducted from a waterfall gorge by a giant. They were rescued by a young man who led them away from the giant.
"At last they broke out into clear country and then they rested. The few trees there were laden with birds. There were probably millions, just as if all the birds of Australia had assembled in this one place to perform the work. The young man was of a bird totem. He was a "karrakal," or magpie, man, and his affinity was the hawk. One there was his pet.
By-and-bye the giant broke through the bush, and when he saw the three sitting down he raised his spear. The young man called, and immediately the birds rose in an enormous flock. They obscured the sunlight. They enveloped the giant. Then the magpie darted at him, followed by the other named. They jabbed holes in his head and face and shoulders. First he tried to shield himself by raising his arms before his face. They he turned and ran roaring from whence he came. The young man returned to their home. " (CW Peck,1928)

Image: HDR hand held composition over the lip of the second fall. This is a very slippery place, unsuited to cameras. The rocks at this pool have a soft pink glow. I have chosen to reprocess this in portrait mode as a HDR toning for depth.
I romanticize the stone here as soft - but i can assure you it is as hard as ordinary rock (or perhaps harder if you slip incautiously on its shiny smooth surface).

Celebrate: Thank you. To celebrate what we all achieved on G+, i am publishing the 50 most viewed posts in this collection until shutdown. This is a reprocessed image of this isolated fall (29th most viewed - viewed 1,938,387 times).

In appreciation for all of you who who have followed this Collection, i have prepared a series of 5 cards, imaging falls in this Collection and i will give them away once every couple of posts. The e-Card is in PDF form that can be downloaded in electronic form, and printed if you wish. The first is ready to be viewed and saved from: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vJ-V4tpTYoRcy8x9tuRqi935LOdC0_vk The eCard also contains a couple of useful links to let you follow this collection of photographs after G+ closes.

The #WhiteHouse says it wants a peaceful, multilateral approach to removing #NicolásMaduro, but all options are on the table - suggesting the possibility of #military involvement. Tensions between Maduro and the movement to unseat him are expected to come to a head this weekend, as members of #Venezuela's U.S.-backed opposition push to carry into the country tons of humanitarian aid and medicine that Maduro's security forces have blocked.

But even for some of Maduro's enemies, Washington's efforts to oust the Venezuelan leader raise concern because of the history of U.S. intervention in the region. The #UnitedStates participated, directly or indirectly, in Latin American regime change more than 40 times in the last century, according to historian John Coatsworth. That figure doesn't include a number of failed missions like the 1961 Bay of Pigs assault in #Cuba. Some of the more stinging U.S. moves included the ouster of democratically elected governments in #Guatemala in 1954, in #Brazil a decade later and in Chile in 1973.

Thank you +Zillow for placing a Samsung Galaxy smartphone into this Zillow commercial from 2018 as well as the new 2019 commercial. So many other companies place iPhones in their commercials when referring to anything mobile.

Thank you for thinking against the grain. 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
