Ormiston Pound, West MacDonnell National Park, Northern Territory, Australia

This photo was captured after an early morning hike to get to this location before sunrise. With the weather very calm, it was amazing to be standing watching the light change on this spectacular section of the MacDonnell Ranges, that was once higher than the Himalayas.

300-350 million years ago a mountain building event created the MacDonnell Ranges. Since that time, folding, faulting and erosion have shaped the range and created numerous gaps and gorges.The ranges are composed of many rock types, but are most famous for their red quartzite peaks and gorges. Some of the valleys of the range contain fossil evidence of the inland sea that once covered central Australia
