Lost In Time

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's quite difficult to comprehend the sheer scale of time that has gone before when visiting much of this area. It’s vast, ancient and at times seemingly empty. There are magnificent mountains with razor like edges that glow red at sunrise and sunset, and 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 far far ago. This was certainly how I felt on this morning as the first light of the day lit up this ancient landscape before me.
