This remote waterhole is on the normally dry Hamilton Creek, north of the Gammon Ranges in outback south Australia.

It is home to rock wallabies and a variety of other animal and bird life, including wedgetail eagles who nest in the cliffs above the waterhole.

At the time this image was made a small cloud put the waterhole into shade but the distant hillside was still in sun, hence the beautiful light.
