Beautiful picture of a very nice area in the red centre Ian. Greetings Berend
You obviously have been to Standley Chasm and Ellery Rock Hole, Berend. Stunning country on the ground, but awesome from the air.
I am very pleased to have been able to photograph this, Geerten. It certainly reveals the tectonic folding that has created the impressive landscapes of Central Australia.
Greetings and best wishes for another year of creativity!
Magnificent aerial pictures you've taken here Ian!! The scars of long lost times make great patterns. So pretty liked!!
Warm wishes and lots of luck and love in 2013, Erik
Those patterns just keep repeating themselves, * Ian*!
Great shot, David.
Thanks Erik for your interest in this bold landscape.
While I can identify features on the ground, I cannot reconcile my experiences on the ground with the impressions one forms from the air. From the air I just feel that I am looking at the earth's umbilicus.
Thanks for your special greetings. I do pray that you have a fruitful and fulfilling 2013.
Agreed. Hogbacks, cuestas, synclines, anticlines, strata, dips, strikes, folding and fluvial erosion: all the features of this landscape are repeatable, plausible and fascinating, David, whether perceived from a geologist cum geomorphologist's viewpoint or from an artist/photographer's perspective.
Either way, its fun.
Yes indeed, JC. The folding at the centre of this continent is rather dramatic, especially when viewed from the air.... and very impressive from the ground, too.
Hi Ianfrom the Group A1-Unique Australia.This is super, I know the Ranges from the ground but this opens a new prospective L
Wonderful picture and precious view
Best regards from México
I agree, Ebi.. when one is on the ground you are not thinking about the pattern of the geological structures too much, except to be marvelling at the bold folding.
It is great to receive your very appreciative comment, Mateo-traveler. Greetings from Australia,
Taken from 11KM altitude, Jacques. I enjoy every flight whether high altitude or low latitude for every flight gives a different perspective on the landscape below.
