Newlands Conservation Park

By Joeblowfromoz
Thanks again for all the great comments and votes on my snail image - still don't know the name of them, and they are quite different from our garden variety ones.

Back to landscapes once again, and this is Newlands Conservation Park, one of the many conservation parks along the Nullabor Plains. Many of the beaches around this are have this pink coloration, which is the result of high levels of carotene in the sand, but makes for wonderful scenery.

Hope you all enjoy it and have a great weekend.

We have to pack up today and head off tomorrow and may not have ready internet access for the next week or so, but will get on when I can.

What a delight to see such a sweep of coast, sunlit and with blue skies and sea, as we have had a day of continuous grey skies and a heavy drizzle.
Very nicely composed shot with good f/g interest, Jo.
(PS. Look forward to more shots when you regain internet connection......R)
