marmalade trail north looks like the right direction.....
how i wish i coulld see such a wonderous place...trails north here lead to serious beauty as well. just different. welcome back.
the Sturt Desert Pea, how wonderful to see it, and such wild sacred places. The old people would have known about all these secrets. thanks for showing us, k.
These places look like images from an imaginary place.
Sturt Desert Pea - SA's flower,and the remedy for deep spiritual hurt.Their plum black centre is gorgeous.
oh my heavens!!! how far north do you have to go to get to such amazing beauty? Flinders Ranges? the old people would most definately known of such spaces - in fact i wonder that you didnt hear their whispers??the first image is quite pink - are there different coloured sturties or is this a technological magic?xo
Food for the soul. I'm yearning to follow the marmalade trail myself.... soon. Your photographs lift my spirits.
These ancient, fragile, dramatic red landscapes are the real attraction in Australia. As a teenager I spent every holiday somewhere inland like this. I can't understand why so many people stick to the coast.
is it because of the rain there were plants growing since so many years?
I was wandering with you and smiling....
This took my breath away...!S
those were indeed pink 'Swainsona formosa' [Sturt Desert Peas]21 years ago, in the year my son was born [when i lived in the desert a bit to the west of the location of these photos], they flowered like that, in all shades of red pink, white, burgundy and combinationsit's been dry for a long timebut good rains this year
Looks like a wonderful place.XXXm
Such an incredible landscape! Those flowers look like alien travellers from a distant galaxy.
Thanks for sharing this journey. A more different place from the one where I live (central american rainforest) I cannot imagine! Magnificent!
seems like another planet to me.
Welcome back, wanderer ~ did you fill your pockets with desert stones?Just look at that life-giving water in the ravine (?)...no wonder the vegetation is singing "Hallelujah"!
looks if you were in a movie, but seen and experience this for real is such a gift.
When I lived in Maui, Haleakala, a dormant volcano and national park always gave me a sense of other spirits in the wind, in the trails of the lava land; these photos give me that same feeling...
love the desert pea pics!
a place well worth wandering to...beautiful
You are not too shabby with a lens dear girl. These look amazing. Must have been a great time of year to travel to these parts.

Are you sure you are NOT in Australia? This flower is the South Australian floral emblem. So beautiful. It grows in abundance in the Flinders Ranges in springtime.
ces ambiances m'inspirent beaucoup.Merci.
i never said i wasn't in Australia...just that i live on a Big Red Island west of French Polynesiatis indeed the emblem of this state, but a pink version
Absolutely wonderful what a bit of rain will do to this gorgeous country of ours pun intended! I have never seen Sturts Desert Pea so intense and your photos are amazing. Thanks for sharing.
