Dawn on the Heysen Range, Flinders Ranges, South Australia

The most vivid dawn colours I witnessed in South Australia was on this morning looking out to the impressive Heysen Range within the central Flinders Ranges.  It still amazes me that such a steep rock formation was formed more than twice as long ago (~500 million years) as the age of the dinosaurs (a mere ~230 million years ago).  Yet another reminder of the geological history Australia holds and why National Parks like these must be preserved.

The most interesting thing about sunrise is that you never know what you're going to get in terms of colours.  I had my camera setup and all of a sudden a burst of glowing pink light radiated onto this scene for a few minutes of this rare and transcendent experience.  Photographed on 6x17cm transparency film.
