Gibber plain, Diamantina Gates National Park Queensland u002809

Diamantina Gates National Park, northwest Queensland, Australia

Gibber Plains are an amazing feature of the northern Australian landscape. The rocks are called gibbers; they are coated with a mineral deposit that makes them look like they have been through a tumbler and partially polished, and form what looks like a pavement. When viewed from a low angle, they glow with pink or purple reflected light. The single tree in the far distance is a gidgee, a semi-desert species of acacia. A very lonely landscape.
