Skywatch Friday

 I didn't realise that I had captured the sky so well in this photo. I was taken with the old fence post.

This photo was taken in the far north of South Australia in the Flinders Ranges. The area was originally an area where a group of  Aboriginal people were resettled after they were removed from theirtraditionalland.

It is called Ram Paddock Gate and is now a protected area and can only be visited with the permission of the local Aboriginal people. There are many relics of the Aboriginal people in this area, although a lot of artifacts were removed/stolen before the land was protected.

So much we have to say sorry for on behalf of our ancestors

  3. really like the blue and white behind the post!

  4. I am so glad there are some remnants of the Aboriginal people left. This post reminded me a great deal of the book/movie Rabbit Proof fence. EVERYONE who cares about indigenous peoples in any country should read that book or see the movie!

  5. I forgot to say that is an AWESOME photo! (Got a little carried away! :-) )

  6. I saw the movie..Rabbit proof fence...what an amazing group of people. Great shot n the sky is gogeous!
