Last light on Mount Giles, West MacDonnell National Park, Central Australia.
A lucky break in the clouds illuminated the mountain while the foreground remained out of the sunlight.

This massive mountain (that is by Central Australian standards, 1389m) is part of the Chewings Range. This was taken at the end of a long day of trackless walking across Ormiston Pound towards the base of the mountain. This is dry country and the water in the foreground was a bonus after some heavy rains in the days before this was taken. Our plan was to climb Giles the next day but we picked the wrong route up. Five years later we had better luck during a 3 week walk from Mount Zeil to Alice Springs.
