The minerals which lay deep underground in the Grampians National Park are brought to the surface by natural springs and stain the water and the sandstone with their pigments. The Grampians lie 235 km west of Melbourne.

Must be copper perhaps...It is a very nice picture. you seem to be drawn by areas of health and minerals. Romania is similar and drawn as many as you well know having been there so much...I had a friend who cold "witch a crystal" node at 15 feet deep. I and my wife have attuned our ears to hearing the low hum of crystal. Your pictures at times are like markers...maps if you will to healing places...and it affects the way you capture so well...

Good Morning,
Great color contrasts for sure, just a bit more proof of the amazing world we live in . Good shot of the surrounding landscape too, looks like a great hiking day!

  • Great

Hi Steve,
the rich colour of that water is truly striking, what a contrast to the pale grey of those rocks. What is it, iron or tannin in it that gives that colour? Great composition and interesting subject, nice one. Alas i have used all :o) for one day, but i won't forget to return!
well done,

Hi Steve,
A back to the roots photo. I like the shape of the rocks and the clear color of the water. I might have opted to crop out the blown sky, so that the eye is more focused on the real subject. Details, clarity and colors are superb.
