Initiation grounds, Rainbow Valley Magic

Initiation grounds, Rainbow Valley Magic
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™ Photography

I scouted this area in Australia's Red Center the night before. This was photographed at first light and I was lucky enough to get the moon in the saddle. This is a mens initiation area for the Arrente aboriginal people and it was an honor to be there. I was sure to ask for permission to the ancients spirits who are caretakers of this magical place. The light I found to be quite magical here. Always warm and unique.

I am still trying to find out what the name of this bush, or plant is. If anyone knows, please let me know.
