Photographer's Note

Some weeks back I was invited to venture deep into the Blue Mountains (west of Sydney) to visit some sacred sites of the Gundungurra Nation who were the traditional land owners of the area. We were taken to an old red ochre site which is linked to part of a very powerful Dreamtime Story telling of the creation of the rivers in the area. The legend was first published in 1908 in a German anthropological journal. The Gurangatch and Mirragan dreamtime creation story is still told today by direct descendants of the Gundungurra people.

While at the ochre site (which is extremely hard to find and protected by deep dense sub tropical type trees / vegetation) I managed to capture a series of photographs.

Here is one photograph - penny for his thoughts!!
