Gaps...

The kids have gone back to school.
I went back to work.
I wish I was still on holidays.
I'm still remembering my 'Outback' adventure.

Alice Springs is a city built in the MacDonnell Ranges.

To get into Alice Springs, your drive through the Gap.

Several tourist sites, including Standley Chasm below, feature 'gaps' in the red quartzite and sandstone rocks of the MacDonnell ranges

I'm not sure where my photo of Jessie Gap is, but here is Emily Gap - the sand is a riverbed.

It's not as spectacular as some other 'gaps', but is a registered  Aboriginal Sacred Site. This is a representation of the creation story from the Aboriginal Dreamtime.

I'm still in awe of the vastness of Central Australia and I can still travel there through my photos.

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...

  1. Great photos!! This is a part of Australia I would love to visit. It would feel like another country compared to where I live in southern Victoria where everything is very green!
