OUR WORLD - Perry's Sandhills


Perry's Sandhills, just outside Wentworth, New South Wales,
are like a mini Simpson Desert. They vary from deep red


through shades of gold,


with clumps of vegetation,


to a most appealing Naples Yellow or straw colour and cover
quite a large area. As in most of inland Australia, it is a hot
dry-land climate where harvests are good, if only there is rain
and rain is a very scarce commodity.



Time to post the best of your world on OUR WORLD, so get to it!

  4. There were some beautiful sandhills near the little town in Texas where I grew up and your photos reminded me of the fun times we had there! Great shots for the day as always! Hope you have a great week, Arija!

  5. The dunes are marvelous, although I wouldn't want to live there. I do so like to feel the warm sand between my toes and look for the tracks of life.

  17. My goodness, look at the colors of the sand! I imagine it's like traveling through a gigantic piece of sand art, only you cannot see the whole picture because you are right in the middle of it.

    Hope you had a most beautiful Easter weekend. :)
