You have seen many images by Melbourne photographer Colin Morris with the most recent being our first Image Challenge. Recently Colin has been visiting central and northern Victoria with his wife and fellow photographer Pam Morris and discovered in the country town of Heathcote some amazing pink cliffs.
On reading about the reserve which was rich in mining activity since the 1850s, we learn that this area was once a hydraulic sluicing site and the high-pressure jets of water washed away the top layer of earth and revealed the dramatic, colourful cliffs on display today.1
You can walk around the area and discover some of the interesting features which offer, as Colin shows, some excellent opportunities for keen photographers.
And you don't have to walk far in Australia to be reminded of the precarious nature of our landscape!
If you are travelling in this area you might like to check out the Pink Cliffs Geological Reserve. Below are a couple of sites to assist you in planning what you might be able to do.
