just a little more from the Ochre Pits - #2

Written about with more detail, in previous post here.  100 kms west of Alice Springs, along the Larapinta Trail, these Ochre Pits are situated on the Namatjira Drive, Burt Plain, N.T.

Love the deep browns. Our ochre pits in the N.Flinders Ranges range more from whit through yellow to a very bright red.

Hi Carole! How far do you travel to capture these great adventures? (I remember learning the word "ochre" when it was one of the original colors in a box of Crayons!)

EVELYN: 21st June was my first post here for the beginning of my Alice Springs, N.T. tour over ten days. It explains all, so I hope you might like to check it out, and any subsequent posts that I've been uploading on this blogspot since then. It was a totally fabulous journey; I just LOVED what I saw ....and have shared it here.

Fascinating. Wish I was there. I'm glad you let a few people walk into your pictures as it gave a good size reference for the cliffs.

Beautiful photos and the colours of the rocks are gorgeous. We have something similar here on the Isle of Wight, but the colours are more pastel rather than the earthy tones in your rocks. Lovely!
