Big sky country 9

We have driven past the Flinders Ranges through greener country, arriving at Port Augusta as the day was closing in.  Port Augusta is a city so we are in small sky country but it was so surprising to be beside the sea I had to use this shot. If you look at the map you will see the Spencer Gulf reaches right up into the centre of the state.


  1. With the reflections, and the composition, and the arrangement, and the colours and and and - wow!

  2. Such a shock to see this image rise up ... mirage like.

    You have an interesting concept of 'middle'!

    When I was in PA just after Easter 2007, my camera and I have a wonderful time on the piers with old rail lines along them.

    Grand shot, BTW.

  3. Silhouettes galore! I love the layers of clouds, bridge/tree line, water, and plants in the foreground. Brilliant composition.

  4. Oh wow - this is magnificent. Beautiful lighting and color. And I'm always a fan of reflections in water :)

  5. Thanks for the nice comments ... it WAS quite a shock to the senses after all the desert. We set up camp in a big hurry so we could get back to the water to catch a shot before the light died.

  6. Great sky and great watery reflection.

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.
