Big sky country 4

Approaching Wilpena Pound, Flinders Ranges

With mountains climbing up to meet the sky, it’s not so big today. The day is closing in and we are rushing to get to Wilpena Pound in the Flinders Ranges before nightfall. Our plan is to soujourn here for 3 nights and we are excited at what we will see over the next few days.


  1. You had so much better weather than we did. You also seem to have gone in the opposite direction.

    On the Art and About website I came across a link to the Foto Reisel Foto Rally on Saturday 16 October which looks like fun. Its a photo challenge where you don't find out the route or the challenge until the start. $10 registration. Its walkable so presumably will be a route through the city.

  2. One of my most favourite photos I've recently seen.
    It's just glorious and dreamy.
    I think these are the photos you do best - country landscapes (not that I don't love your other photos, too! - it would be a bit boring if you just did landscapes).

  4. I recently saw the Hans Heysen exhibition in Canberra, who painted lots of Flinders Ranges landscapes in the early 20th Century. This photo looks exactly like his paintings.

  5. Ann, we had lots of rain but also plenty of sunshine. And yes, we clearly took a different route from you. I'll check out the rally.

    Letty, a plethora of landscapes coming up.

    Winam, everywhere I turned at the Flinders I saw Heysen painting. I see the exhibition is finished in Canberra. I would like to have seen it to compare.

  6. Great depth of field. How green it is!

  7. So much greener than when I was there in 2007.

  8. I hope you don't mind, I put this on my desktop. It's such a pretty sight, the earth and the big sky.

Gundagai exploring

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.

We found a little time to go on a drive to see the local towns  This wonderful old squatters mansion is outside Mintaro.
