Overcome by Rugged Beauty

via Daily Prompt: Overcome


Australia has many gorges, and many natural features that astound and take your breath away (if you’re open to it). The Photo is of a gorge near the Tjukurla community the water is part of  the Bungabiddy rockhole. I am always overcome by the rugged beauty, the texture, the smells, the light, the sounds of birds, the colours, the plants, and underpinning it – the quiet. To touch, to see, to feel, to hear, to embody. They’re the very things I like to be overcome with.

  1. The absolute stillness that reaches out from the rock and into your soul; the calm moment of life as it is, the breath that takes in the whole of it all; that is this place to me.
    Australian, born in the arid zones, I love the desert and all its senses, but these gorges (some are so magnificent and overwhelming to the fly-speck that is me) have a completely different way of breathing, of giving you the nod, of sharing time.

  2. Too right! Still have fond, breathtaking memories of hiking down the Murchison gorges in Yr12 High School. You could say, Oz gorges are just absolute gorgeous … !
