Daily Post Challenge: Forces of Nature


This weeks Daily Post challenge asks us to put up a photo or photos of the forces of nature.

The corner of the world I was in yesterday was Mudgee/Gulgong NSW, Australia. I was taken to a site near here that is called “The Drip”. Not a very exciting title and it doesn’t conjure up much majesty or something worth the 2.8km round trip. I set off dubiously…..

We walked up the side of the Goulburn River along sandstone rocks that had been carved out as some stage by large amounts of water barrelling through here. On either side there was stone that had been etched by water. On rounding our last turn my eyes set upon something that I just did not envisage a few moments beforehand…

A gorge like structure, made of sandstone showing its different coloured strata and a small creek running beneath it. It is called The Drip because water falls from above on the curved rim down to the floor below. You can see rocks strewn around which must have at one stage formed part of this wall and when the elements had worn it away to the stage of falling, this is where it sits today.

I felt like I was in the Northern Territory with all its wondrous rock formations but no I was still ensconced in New South Wales near Gulgong/Mudgee not expecting to see anything to this extent. Totally worth the trip up and down the river to view. Please forgive my white-out sky. I haven’t had a chance to post process these very much at present.
