The Flinders Range (Brachina Gorge)

Flinders Ranges, AustraliaBrachina Gorge has an amazing array of flora and fauna and today we took a scenic drive through this stunningly beautiful and ancient landscape..

We travelled along what is often referred to as “Corridor Through Time” on a self-guided tour of the gorges.

Flinders Ranges, AustraliaHans Heysen, later Sir Hans, the German-born Australian artist spent a great deal of his life in the Flinders Ranges, capturing the beauty of the area in water-colours.  He summed up the Flinders Ranges landscape when he said it is “the bones of the earth laid bare”.

It was great to see first-hand the landscape that inspired so many of his paintings prior to his passing in 1968.

This evening we are going to take time to watch the lunar eclipse as the full moon rises over the rugged Flinders Ranges landscape.

    Great photos of a beautiful area. What region of the country is this?

    Who is the reptile in the photo? He blends right in with the soil and rock.

    Crikey, the pressure is on now. But here is the thing about an eclipse, you can’t see the damn thing! Actually it was quite spectacular, in some respects, and a little underwhelming in others, but let me elaborate more on that later.

    But let me say this, We are very fortunate to be out here in the spectacular Flinders Ranges to see both the sunset, and the eclipse from a vantage point that one might only ever dream about!

    All good!! The Lunar Eclipse..spectacular…rising over Moreton Bay and me sitting on my rear patio, sipping wine and lots of verbal ooooooo’s and rrrrrrrrrr’s. The moon look so 3D and through the binoculars even more surreal!!! Hope the ‘Go West’ crew saw it all!!!

      I love them, and whilst I spotted him, Janet grabbed the camera and took the photo, in fact she had only just commented that we hadn’t seen any, and hey presto! 🙂
