Heysen Heartland

Heysen Range, Flinders Ranges National Park, South Australia, Australia

The Heysen Range, part of the Flinders Ranges is named after the great Australian artist, Sir Hans Heysen who first visited the ranges in 1926. Heysen, particularly recognised for his watercolours of the South Australian bush, produced a large number of sketches and water colours of the Flinders Ranges. The Heysen range, stretching along the central Flinders Ranges is full of wild mountains, spectaculair gorges, gentle streams and plenty of wildlife. The sunrise I experienced on this morning was simply spectacular. Arriving at this location in the dark, the entire sky soon lit up pink casting the entire scene with a magenta hue. Shortly after as the sun breached the horizon, Heysen range was lit up and glowed red before me as you see here. It was a tough choice choosing which photograph I liked most from this morning but I settled on this image, displaying much of the magnificence of the spectacular Heysen Range.
