Greetings Erik,

If this photo contributes to your winter survival that's good and if it tempts you to buy a ticket then it will have more than achieved its humble purpose!! Thanks too. May 2010 be filled with more wonderful photo opportunities.

beautiful place, I don´t know why I´m thinking about the novel "Cry, the Beloved Country" when I see this shot. greetings Sig.

It is beautiful, and it could look very much like some southern African landscapes, especially in Eastern Cape and Natal.

Thanks for your comment, Sig, for you have me thinking about the tragic stories on which Apartheid was built. And about our sense of identity and its relationship to place, land and environment.

Thank you, Andrey. The green here at the moment must be a great contrast to your white landscape currently.

Warmest regards,

Nice Photo, caught my eye. I was wondering though as to why it's called Hack's Jurassic Park? Any meaning behind it?

Hi Tim,

It is an attractive valley with lots of natural treasures.

Above the homestead on the bench to the left you will see a dinosaur ruminating. There are other species of wildlife found on the property, courtesy of a member of the family who was a set maker at Movie World on the nearby Gold Coast.
