When it rains up here everything changes. The colour of the rocks richer as the dust is washed away, the vegetation sprouts so that sorry looking shrubs suddenly become healthy drab green trees, and the light quality changes so much that you suddenly notice whole mountain ranges you’ve never realised were there before.
Last night I decided to go out and enjoy the light misting rain that seems to have settled over Alice for the past few days and went to out to Simpsons Gap to see what these changes did to the landscape away from town. The photos might no show it, but the difference in the landscape is so significant that I’ve noticed and entire range I’d never seen before.
I hope you enjoy these snap shots.
