The Grampians, Victoria

             MacKenzie Falls -- On the rainy morning of 16th November, 2001, I was the first to descend the steep, slippery steps to the falls. The 1.5 km walk  back to the top was most strenuous indeed, and my back was as much moistened by perspiration as it was by precipitation.

The Grampians, or Graniwerd, stand like islands amid Victoria's western plain, serving as a wall between the damp temperate coast to the south and the arid mallee bushes to the north. As with most other mountains in Australia, these are sacred grounds for the aboriginal people.

This photo is taken with the Canon G1 digital camera. It is actually a composite of two images, one overexposed to create the satin water effect.
