the rusty tones are indeed nice to see, Ray.
Ray: You will see a lt of this if you spend time in Australia, Ayush.
Beauty!!! I did enjoy it all, very much!
Ray: Excellent! I might do another Australian series next year, Elizabeth.
Très jolies photos pour terminer ton reportage.
Ray: Merci, Martine. Je voulais finir avec quelques détails des belles roches.

I really like this, Ray, and it made me smile - I was admiring that amazing rock when I suddenly spotted Ben doing he same. Thanks for the fab tour
Ray: It is a wonderful place, Lisl, and reminds me of how ruggedly beautiful many parts of Australia are. I am pleased you enjoyed the tour, and might feature Australia again some time next year.
Looks like I might need to go back and catch up, Ray! I'll try doin that soon....
Ray: It is great to see you active of SC again, Ginnie.

I enjoyed my vicarious visit to USA with you and Astrid on Facebook.
Bonjour
Je suis une grande fan de ces roches ..des couleurs superbes !!
Bonne journée Ray
Ray: Merci, Claudine. J'ai passé mon enfance dans un endroit où il y avait beaucoup de sable mais presque pas de rocher ... maintenant je vis dans une énorme rizière qui est plate et n'a presque pas de roche ... quand je suis au milieu des rochers je suis très intéressé et content.

Ray, this is an impressive series and I went back 3 weeks. Wonderful pictures and that meeting with the Echidna was unique, great link with it. Was this the first time for Na and son to be in Australia? And how did they like it. (I love the body language of Na, after descending the mountain.....)
Ray: Thank you, Astrid.

Na has been with me to Australia several times, and Mawin twice...they have enjoyed the visits very much.
This has been most enjoyable Ray. Thanks for the tour
Ray: You are welcome, Bill. I might do some more series on Tours to exotic places.

I like the way that rock structure is like swirling water Ray.
Ray: It fascinated me, too, Chad.

Some interesting lines and patterns here, created over the ages.
Ray: Just two of several places where I found the detail in the rocks very interesting, and pointed a camera at it, Louis.
I love those colorful rocks... fine series...
Ray: Thank you, Larry.

I like to get up close to things with the camera.
Views like this of the sandstone surfaces does it for me most of all. I certainly did not view the Grampians like this.
Ray: The Grampians is a big area, Mary, and you would have had to stay there a month to see it all. This area is around the back from the main tourist area at Halls Gap, and is very lightly populated with tourists...on this walk we had the whole place to ourselves.
Looks as though there might be iron in there!
Ray: I expect you are entirely correct, Tom. This is the main colour of Australia's interior and, despite shipping vast quantities to China, there is still a lot of iron ore there.
Some amazing rock colours and strata Ray. This has been a really enjoyable series.
Ray: I am delighted that you came for the stroll, Brian.
it was a wonderful series Ray... these rock formations look like nature cut them in a cross section to show them off....petersmile
Ray: Thank you, Peter.

It does look like Nature is showing off!
Incredible to see the exposed swirling layers in the top image
Ray: I stared at this amazing sight for ages, Martin.
