These rare fossilised ripple marks were once part of an ancient lake or seashore, 400 million years ago.

The fossils are composed of Mereenie sandstone.

Located at Kings Canyon, part of the Watarrka National Park in Northern Territory, Australia.

Mamiya ZM film camera, as is.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
