Its a long way to the top

if your a dinky little bit of Spinifex (or me for that matter, damn dunes are hard to climb)

I love this scene, there was such a contrast between the never ending dunes and the encroaching grass and succulent plant thingys. The way the clouds streaked across the frame mirroring the shadows on the ground from the glow of the sun (which had just lifted above the clouds to the right) just screamed, 'photograph me'.. so i did just that πŸ™‚

now, I will also have ya's all know, dunes are very deceptive beings, the climb to the top looks easy enough from a distance, but once on the slope the calves are burning and your taking 4 steps to only go 1 step forward!
With that said, grab ya self a bit of cardboard, oddly enough I found one nearby discarded from some knobs who had left their beer carton there and put your bum on it and its a fast way to the bottom.. bit like life really.. hard slog to the top and one very fast fall from the top πŸ˜‰

Techie love:
