What a facinating place this is, The Devils Marbles, near Tennant Creek in Northern Territory. Natural erosion over millions of years in this unique part of the world, caused the marble like granite boulders.

These two propably the 2 most popular photographed boulders, standing about 4 metres high. Shot taken 5 minutes after the sunset, looking North.

One thing I quite enjoyed while in the Northern Territory, is the sunset colours on the red rocks and red sands. The reds were so intense! During the full daylight, the red was slightly washed out, definately worth waiting around at these places and waiting for the sunset or sunrise :)
