Corroboree Rock (Antanangantana) East MacDonnell Ranges, Central Australia

Despite it’s name, the real significance to the local Aboriginal people of this rocky outcrop is not well known. Quite a sight with the Spinnifex and Senna on the high ridges and Supplejack, Whitewood, Bloodwood and Red Mallee in the valley - even found the odd native fig at the base of the rock.

The small roadside sign reads “No Dogs Allowed” – looks like they might have had a dog problem a few thousand years ago!

Here is an image made at Docklands, in Victoria, Oz. What you see is just a small crop of a large panorama I put together a few weeks ago. The finished pano can be found here: http://www.gigapan.com/gigapans/134321
Have fun, explore the image, view the panorama in full screen mode and zoom in on the details! Enjoy!

Comfortable, fast, clean and spot on time – not even a mobile phone to disturb the peace. The landscape flies past the window at 300km/h  - it’s like being at the movies, the film running at double speed. Fabulous!

I know – I’m a sucker for reflected images. Found this concoction in Melbourne’s Hamer Hall. Haven’t yet worked out if the appeal lies in the visual order brought into chaos or simply the labyrinth the eye has to navigate to make sense of the image.
