Sandstone Caves
Posted By: AussieTrev, 04-12-2013, 09:41 PM

One for Bob and Jerry. We have colour too. This is a location called the Sandstone Caves, it is a significant Aboriginal location with some remaining evidence, axe grinding grooves and some carvings. Very little processing. The colours are stunning.

It was a good thing you had good lighting to get these great shots as it accentuated the colours in the sandstone.

Thanks for posting these. I have driven past this area many times. Always on the way to somewhere else. Next time I will take the time for a good look around here and the Warrumbungles too.

These for the most part, these appear to be vertical. Here in Arizona we have the horizontal slot canyons - the most famous set being Antelope Canyon.I bet that a day of shooting there would produce some exceptional set of images and colors across sunrise through sunset, both inside the "cave" and outside. The shadows, I would think would be stunning.

Lovely area to photograph Trev. Stunning images. Glad you put your wife in as that really gave the caves some perspective. Bob has to be a little jealous too don't you think?

No, Trev, it's out between Leyburn and Inglewood.
Thank you. I might have been confused by the name of a winery. I know the area out that way a little, worked at ?Warwick for a couple of years back in the 90's.

We were there about 9:30 in the morning. I can only imagine the light at sun rise. A little secret on the light, set the white balance to shade and bam the colours are real.

Thanks Tess. they aren't big on the scale of some caves, but the land around is fairly flat plain. They are not even deep. I just loved the colour of the sand stone, so refreshing after such a wide brown land that is Australia.

Thank you Bruce. It is not sign posted on the request of the local Aboriginals, it is 9.5km north from the Pilliga Pottery turn off and named the Yaminbah Trail.

Mostly, it appears to be a fracture or uplift, not overly high. thank you for your comments.

Stunning images.
Thanks Susan. Both of us loving to take photographs we rarely feature in the shots unless it is the back taking a shot.

I think a revisit will be in our future and there is still much to see in this area. Thank you.
