High red cliffs, a large waterhole and a sandy creek fringed by gums make Ellery Creek Big Hole a popular attraction within the West MacDonnell National Park.

The waterhole is situated on the Finke River. At 15 million years old, this river is believed to be one of the oldest rivers on Earth.

The West MacDonnell Ranges extends from the MacDonnell Ranges west of Alice Springs.

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.
