Acacia over Ormiston Pound

Steven Pearce

Alice Springs, Australia

Artist's Description

A well weathered Rock Acacia sit on top the ridge line of the South wall of Ormiston Pound. I had been watching this tree for almost a year now and dreaming of having the right light too shoot it.

This morning was perfect with heavy clouds to really block out the sun which would have been right behind the branches. Plus the amazingly clear conditions enabled the viewer to see a stunning amount of detail in the usually dusty mountains of the north wall.
