I take off in darkness as Arkaroola village still sleeps, and hike
along the road towards Nooldulnoolduna Waterhole (I hope I
have the right number of o's in that!). I walk with determinations
not to miss a moment of the dawn spectacle, and yes, slowly as
the light grows, everything assumes the red glow I came for.
The sky itself in my direction looks quite bland but
turn around and it starts firing up. I hope the cloud cover will
nor dull the spectacle I expect.
Perhaps not as overwhelming as I had hoped, but rather nice
As the red glow spreads to the road as well, I speed up the next
rise to get an open view of the glowing rocks.
A quick look back and I am transfixed by the emerging gold
that flames in the clouds,
I reach a little vantage point and watch the wonder of the rock
faces bathed in blood.
This is what I came to the dry inland for, these moments of magic
when the landscape is transformed.
Keep watching the wonder of the sky and capture those moments for all to see.
