A walk in the Granite Peaks
Lens: Pentax DA 35 limited Camera: K7 Photo Location: Canberra, Australia ISO: 400

The Brindabella Ranges form the south-western edge of the Australian Capital Territory, and along with the rest of the "Snowy Mountains" are mostly composed of ancient, worn masses of granite. Although here, under clear water, it looks orange, the rock is mostly shades of grey and pink.

The quartz crystals of the dry, rough granite away from the creek bed reflect the afternoon sun.

That same afternoon sun seems to merge with the water in its flow, creating something like liquid light.

Although we're at the end of summer and moving into autumn, the rain has brought new growth to the forest. The new leaves of many plants in Australia are red; it's a bit like autumn in reverse.

Even the tiniest new leaves may be red.

The forest is still littered with the corpses of veterans that didn't survive the bushfires of 2003.

Even this Swamp Wallaby seemed old and tired, reluctant to hop.
