State of mind

I remember the exact moment I took this picture, because this tree completely represents my state of mind at the time. I was in Darwin out of season. I felt alone and vulnerable but I was hanging in there like this little tree.

Trio: the three sisters

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/trio/

This is a set of mountain ranges in the Blue Mountains in Sydney called the three sisters. Apparently there is a dream time story that says that three sisters were turned two stone to protect them from being kidnapped by a neighbouring tribe of men who wanted to marry them. The myth is probably made up – if that makes sense! Very lovely landscape and views. I always remember the lady who came on our trek across the mountains wearing sandals with flight socks!

Monochromatic, dramatic sunset

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/monochromatic/

In the middle of the Queensland Outback just at the Northern Territory border is a little fuel stop called Camooweal.  It was some experience working there in a bar for 8 weeks that felt like 8 months, but one thing is for sure, I have never seen sunsets like the ones there, before or after.  This part of Australia is covered in red dust and when the sun set, it was like the very air turned red.
