Diana Australis' photos


Midday nap.....?

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.

Not a pin up girl

My favourite llama picture from Bolivia. She has character.

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

Location:


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.

Strata

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.

London Arch

Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia. It used to have two arches, until one collapsed in 1990.

Location:


Indian Ocean...the empty shore

Kooljamun beach...indigenous community land. Dampier Peninsula. Far west Western Australia...a very remote and difficult to access area.
