Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

8 05 2013

Last weekend we visited Litchfield National Park, just south of Darwin in the Northern Territory.  It was a glorious day and we found some beautiful places to stop and admire the view before venturing off to swim in a fresh rock pool at the foot of the falls.

These two pictures are from viewing platforms above Florence (above) and Tolmer Falls (below).  From that perspective, you can see the vast open spaces that stretch across the land.  Most of the park is inaccessible, even by 4WD, such is the ruggedness of the landscape.  It is amazing country and has a really peaceful vibe.  The rock faces hide and reveal things as the light changes and the trees whisper along with the constant shooooosh of the waterfalls.  It was lovely, calming, peaceful and refreshing.
