Mt Barney area

Mt Barney area
Seen from the glider. The flat topped mountain is Mt Lindsay with, to the right of it, the East and West peaks of Mt Barney. This is a fabulous area for bushwalking* where, long long ago, I used to spend enjoyable weekends doing just that. There is a closer view of these peaks in a note.

These mountains are part of what is called the Scenic Rim, an arc of ranges and peaks of volcanic origin, to the south and west of Brisbane. Much of it is National Park. The volcano that created the ranges was a 'shield volcano' that fizzed away 24M years ago. Shield volcanos spread very fluid lava far and wide and, although this one was centred near Mt Barney, that peak developed a little later as a granitic intrusion that never quite broke the surface - the surrounding softer lava and sandstone has eroded away to leave it protruding. Those of you with a geological interest should find this item from the Queensland Geological Society interesting: qld.gsa.org.au/Barneyv5.pdf

* (depending where you are, known as hiking / trekking / tramping). Explored.

Thanks, Ron. Just a quick note on Australian terminology, a bushwacker is somewhat different from a bushwalker (though some might disagree with that opinion) - the first is a 'yokel'. :)

Fascinating educational photo with excellent commentary George. Those heavenly clouds look as if they were specially made for this view and their contribution is most laudable .

Love Mt Lindsay, it is such a great formation. I took a photo a few years ago and mis-identified it originally. Great aerial shot, George. Must have been marvellous to glide over the Scenic Rim.

Thank you all so much for making this one of my 'most popular' images, also for your many comments and faves. It was magical to see this from the glider, one of my favourite places from long ago (and so much easier than climbing it). :)

Beautiful country, captured beautifully AND fascinating information to enhance it. Thank You.
My one glider flight was magic ... the wind sounds of course, and occasional bird calls, but so quiet and peaceful. Never to be forgotten.

Thank you very much and I fully agree about gliding. It's maybe as well that there are no opportunities for gliding near where I live, or I could see myself wanting to spend quite a lot of time up there. :)
