Little River Falls Wulgulmerang Wilderness

The moss banks underlying the upper cascades of these falls have been exposed by the dry conditions. While the bush land nearby is tinder dry, the river bed remains humid.

Airfield Falls in Fort Worth where I went for sunrise on this #earthday . Spring rains have brought the falls back to life and passing clouds made for interesting sky this morning.

Goanna Headland
and the story of the Goanna that chased the snake away.

Aboriginal mythology and the associated stories are so fascinating, my mum has a whole bunch of books of various stories relating to creation stories of Aboriginal lands and legends, some of the earliest stories that she read to me were from these books, one which I remember vividly was the story of the rainbow serpent and the way it created the land for the first time, another about who some people where cut out of a snake only to have them turned into birds :) ok, they may be a bit lost in time and memory there.. but hey its been a few years ;)

I have visited Goanna Headland many times over the years, mostly not knowing how culturally significant this location is, but more recently becoming aware of its history - this place contains a Rain Cave (sacred place for trying to get rain to come) , nope i have not gone in there 'cause you get bad kaarma and if you do and floods occur.. apparently :) its got some sacred ceremonial grounds (up on Snapper rock) and neatest of all a great big goanna forming the shape of the whole headland.
It is also of course not complete without some some quality input from the newly arrived europeans who felt it necessary to kill a bunch of aboriginal people out on the headland, i try and avoid thinking about that as i walk out in pitch darkness to get down to the rocks by first light :/

Now, back to that story about the Goanna who chased the bad snake away, apparently the Goanna rests here keeping a watchful eye out to the ocean for the return of the snake, well, i'm here to tell you Dirawong (thats the Goanna spirit) these snakes are making a mockery of you ;) they are everywhere out there on the headland ! and those Kangaroos, they are certainly not little ones :) feel free to wake up and shuffle a few of those shakey snakes on their way - on a positive note, I have noticed a significant decline in the number of spider encounters in my walks out to the headland, possibly due to the time of year etc, but sheesh thats a welcome change not to face plant those big fat spiders that string across the path.

This picture is taken on one of the legs (the rear one) of the goanna, its one of the many cool rocky outcroppings filled with nooks and crannies perfect for the seascrapers taking a photo or two.

So, here's to you, the people of the Bundjalung Nation, who sadly no longer inhabit, in the way they should, the lands of Goanna Headland.

Living with locals, Myanmar

Getting as far as we legally could north in Myanmar, to a place in the mountains I won't name (for safety reasons), it was forbidden to explore the area, and the military made sure of this. However, one early morning we snuck out of town and explore the neighbouring mountains, where after several hours of trekking we came across a little village situated right on top of a hilltop. The entire village came to a standstill when we wandered through, as if they hadn’t seen caucasians before (the vast majority would not have). It was a really cultural experience and they were just the most friendly and accommodating people. Among other things that day, we stared in the opening photograph of a local democratic building (Myanmar people are hugely oppressed). What an honour. Later that day we also were invited by a young girl that had been showing us around, to stay with her family that evening.

This photograph is of two children within that family we stayed with, warming up inside by the fire as night drew in. We were made a very big special dinner by “Grandma” that evening, just for her new guests (us). Filling our bellies up, we then slept on a couple of blankets next to this fire for the night.

South Australian Sunset

The Adelaide metropolitan coastline happens to sit on the east side of the St Vincent gulf. Which means we are lucky enough to get sunsets over the ocean all year round. I live a couple of minutes from the beach, so when I’m in the mood for some photography, I’m always keeping an eye on the clouds in the sky. Hallett Cove beach is a local for me, and happens to have an interesting coastline with many photogenic rock and cliff formations.
