Cracked Earth

by on Sep.28, 2019, under Life, Photography

The earth is massively cracked around these parts. Which is what gives rise to these fantastic deep red gorges made famous in Karijini

Millions of years of water and wind erosion doing their work in iron ore rich lands

It’s only when you can view it from up here that you can see the extent

In this 21 frame 180˚ panorama the aptly named Red gorge is that large craterous crack across the foreground. Knox gorge comes inwards off that on the far left of frame. Near the middle and right is the junction of Hancock and Weano gorges. Oxer lookout is towards the end of that pointy bit of land inbetween those two gorges. Joffre gorge also joins there and leads off away towards the distant middle of the frame. That puts the ECO Retreat way way (15kms) in the distance in the middle of frame at the other end of that gorge

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.
