    If that stock shot had the clarity of Bobcock's American thread pictures it would be award winning. As some of bc's should be. You just cant be shots of mother nature.

    The rock is close to the centre of Oz and rain there is definitely news worthy as it don't happen often .

    Climbed it many years ago, it had rained the day before. Not a big rain, but enough. Not many tourist then. When We got to the top there was pools of cold water, with little white shrimps in them. After the hot climb that was the best water I have ever tasted. It was still a magic place then, no roads and just one hotel.
    You have to go far to see things that don't have an airport and tourist buses now. Jim
