CBBH photo challenge

CBBH Photo Challenge ; View of the Bungle Bungles from an Aircraft

I have just discovered this blog “East of Malaga” Marianne gives us photo challenges with a twist, as well as posting appropriate photos we also pass on a couple of other blogging buddies that we follow…

This challenge really excited me as I have photos of the amazing flight we took from Kununurra (I love the name of that town, it rolls off your tongue) Over the huge Ord river dam and Lake Argyle diamond mines into the heart of the Kimberly’s and landed among the surreal Bungle Bungles mountain range. We spent 8 hours walking through this ancient landscape before flying back as the sunset.

It took an hour to fly to the small landing strip and then we spent 8 hours walking among these ancient formations. This place rates as one of the most amazing places I have ever visited. The history of it is very recent in European discoveries as it was only in 1988 that these formations were discovered. Of course the Aboriginals had known of them for centuries and they are a very special and sacred place to the indigenous people.

In 2010 I did a 2 day over-land tour into this area and slept in a swag under the stars. It was truly a magical experience.

This time it was fly in and then as the sunset we flew back to Kununurra, my gypsy soul full to over-flowing with the experience…

If you come to Australia put a visit to this area at the top of your list it is truly a unique and inspiring place..

Now I have the pleasure to introduce you to a couple of my blogging buddies. It is hard to name just 2 as I follow and enjoy reading the posts and interacting with so many inspirational people out there in the blogosphere. I will be back to visit Marianne’s weekly challenge and I can then gradually introduce you to more.

Lisa of “Zeebra Designs and Destinations” is an artist living in Costa Rica. She is a very talented lady and shares stories and photos of her life and friends in the area she lives, taking us for walks along the muddy tracks into town. Showing us the food and interaction with the children and neighbours. I love chatting with her in cyberspace. Go over and say “hello”…

Ailsa of “Where’s my backpack” is a traveller, I love following her stories of the adventures and places she has seen and visited. She is a true free spirit and her descriptions and photos take you on the journey with her. She also organizes a weekly photo challenge “Travel Theme” each week she chooses a different subject to keep you searching for photos to portray the theme. It is hugely popular and hundreds of bloggers submit very interesting interpretations of the theme each week. Take a look, this week it is “shadows“..
