ABC Range, Flinders Ranges National Park, South Australia, Australia
The present day landscape of the Flinders Ranges was formed over the last 560 million years. It is quite difficult to comprehend the sheer scale of time that has gone before when visiting much of this area. Its vast, ancient and at times seemingly empty. There are magnificent mountains with razor like edges that glow red at sunrise and sunset. Emus and kangaroos pass by, seemingly out of place in a modern world so dominated by large cities. Were it not for the man made roads or occasional sounds of a passing car, it's easy to imagine you are lost in a time long, long ago. This was certainly how I felt on this morning as the first light of the day lit up this ancient landscape before me.
