Stone Country Dimensions 1

Arrived in Darwin to bushfires filling the sky.  Back in the Territory.  Four little walkabouts on the Arnhem Plateau in Kakadu National Park since then and some imagery is long overdue.  Days in the field have passed counting trees and shrubs, getting species jumbled in my head.  But spending plenty quiet moments too, getting lost in the colors and textures of the Stone Country.  I've finally invested in a lens that can capture something of it (Pentax DA 35mm macro).  Rather than the play-by-play story of field adventures (and endless landscape shots), here's a handful of fotos exploring the Stone Country's inner dimension....
