Photographer's Note

Stanley Chasm is about 50 kms from Alice Springs. It is a large gap at the tail end of the spectacular West Mcdonnell Ranges. It has been gouged into the sandstone over millions of years and is surrounded by craggy slopes rising up for 80 metres. It is the main attraction in an aboriginal owned flora and fauna reserve with abundant bird life, wallabies and many rare plants including cycad palms and ferns. The main attraction to most visitors is when the sun is at its highest point in the sky and enters the chasm causing it to flare supposedly in a spectacular fashion. However, I believe that from a photographic point of view, that the best colour and a reduced excessive contrast occurs just after this time, when the sun is reflecting off one of the chasm faces causing the rock to display its best colours.
