Diana absente's photos
I am away for a month. I leave you with an uncropped picture of a wild freshwater crocodile in Lake Argyle, far north west Australia. I will comment when Internet is available! Best wishes...
Afternoon on the lake
Lake Argyle in far north Western Australia. It was formed by the flooding of millions of hectares of former cattle grazing land and contains the water volume of 21 Sydney Harbours. It is used to irrigate agricultural land. Nearby is the giant Argyle diamond mine.
Les Turbans Rouges
Old film poster at Sun Picture Theatre...the 90 year old deck chair cinema in Broome, far north Western Australia. The still original decor is like a historic journey back through film. Apparently this is a 1967 film set in the North of India in British colonial days.
Yellow Kapok with large ants...
The 'nuts' burst into balls of fluffy kapok, which used to be the material with which mattresses were stuffed. Northern Territory, Australia
Into the canyon
Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). Central Australia. Walking into a gorge in these ancient, arid rocks. The human figures give an idea of scale.
The Bungle Bungle Ranges...Purnululu National Park. Far north Western Australia. These are some of the oldest rock formations on earth. It is a World Heritage listed Site in a very remote area. The beehive-shaped domes are Devonian calcareous sandstone, with regularly alternating, dark gray bands of cynobacterial crust.
Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia. It used to have two arches, until one collapsed in 1990.
