Landscape - Rainbow Vally

Marking the end of May, is this stunning Landscape Photograph of Rainbow Valley.

Usually there is water here; however today, it is bone dry and has formed a hard claypan. Off in the distance, a shape escarpment rises from the hard and dry low lying land. With a striking white stripe in the rockface and scree piles below that mix, the colours as the rocks fall from above. It is a landscape that few will see in their lifetime.

Today the temperature was a bit higher than expected, 26 degrees. I think this is the last breath of Autumn before the long winter brakes in October. The good news is out here the flies will soon all disappear, with the coming cold weather. Taking photographs in the cool weather out here can be a challenge, but it will be worth it as I head towards the great red sands of the Simpson Desert.

It's not the Martian surface any more because some plants are growing in the red soil. But the landscape is stunning, so are the fantastical rocks far ahead, as well.
