Pilbara dream

By annettep38  
Many thanks to you all for cheering me up. I took Prabusinha's hint and looked for something green and hopeful.

a late sun on the Western Desert, a Pilbara dreamscape and a fond memory!
taken about 20 years ago somewhere between Newman and Tom Price.
Spinifex grass covers most of central Australia, I think it inspired the dotted style of Aboriginal paintings Smile It is full of resin which was used as a traditional glue and jointing material
