Filled with excitement waiting for the sun to come up on a great day that followed.
Took about 2 hours to drive from Penneshaw, taking my time again,
A stop at Flinders Chase Information Centre, Just as well, i didn’t realise that there was a fee to enter the National park, I said that to the lady behind the counter, to which she replied “well obviously you were not looking out for signs!”
I said “that’s right I was too busy looking out for Roos!”
I spent about 2 hours here mostly timing in between small bus loads of people visiting, with a wonderful selection of accents.
At one stage I had to organise a group of young girls to get their photos around performing hand stands, really?!!!! apart from the fact that at that age we think we are immortal, really didn’t want to see anyone fall off the edge!!!
Thought it was kind of funny, they thanked me before they left!
Allowing an American tourist who was annoyed at them, I gestured after you, get your shots in first, also a thank you, and man who decided to ignore me, camera set up tripod included, oh well he did say sorry!!! lol
Finally i got my shots, gotta be quick around people coming and going and getting a little creative using rocks to hide a few people who liked where they were standing, oh well, I think we all got our shots in the end, a stroll around, not daring to cross the line and did the right thing.
Would have been amazing at sunset, so if you are brave enough to travel at that time, please be careful. I only saw one Roo cross about 100 metres in front of me although lots of road kill and skid marks on the road.
Feeling blessed about my safe journey to and from, in fact for the 3 days I was cruising around.
Sunset at Walls of China, Lake Mungo, NSW
Last stop of the Lake Mungo circuit
The walls of China
We couldn’t get a tour, so we decided to have a wonder around, respectfully not jumping any fences,
I fell in love with that tree from a distance, although I didn’t take my long lens with me so that was that.
A lovely local tour guide spotted my travel companion and invited us in, how kind was that!
Graham was really friendly and allowed us to wonder in until sunset.
My feet still full of blisters upon blisters from the last few weeks,
I went in!!!
YOU only live once!
Graham was also kind enough to give me not one but two bottles of water.
Really nice to chat with him and watch the sunset..
You can find Graham with all his local wisdom through,
This was the highlight of Mungo trip. You have to love natures art, Sand Dunes and mystery Roo Prints…
Was this to be my last selfie? Was time to head back, feeling a little heat exhausted, mmm think you have had enough water, think again.
Just one more look and click, just beautiful, I love natures art.
It was about 7am and I thought it would be a good time to have a stroll while the shops closed.
Another warm morning indeed.
It didn’t take long before the locals were all setting up, mmmm maybe a little earlier next time?
Unfortunately there was no next time, well this visit anyway.
Pingyao is located between Beijing and Xian in China and is said to be 2700 year old.
This street that i was walking was towards the East Gate of the Ancient town, spanning 2km square.
Well here it is!!! my largest Pano yet, it’s approximately 13 images, 450cm long!!!
Spent countless hours on this image, mainly trying to figure out how to save large format files!
That being said, yet another learning curve, a challenge but fun, best i write some notes for myself!
Summer Palace Beijing…
What is cooler than dancing in the rain.
The rain come out of nowhere and had us trapped at the top, with a plane to catch we made a dash for it, soon enough the rain cleared and blue skies just like it never happened, A beautiful place to visit..
