"Flock Hill"

Share This

"Seeking a unique perspective to highlight the dramatic rock formations of Flock Hill station, I made a steep climb & entered through these two rocks either side. Wow, it was if I had entered the gates to another world (& in fact, the movie "Narnia" was filmed here!) Arriving mid afternoon, I explored the ridge line but this was by far the best position. So I then waited until the sun descended, capturing this stunning vista at precisely 8.15pm. Neighboring Castle Hill Station lies to the right in the distance, with State Highway 73 intersecting the two."
