3 images of the same snail. As the weather is moist, the snails are very active. This one was hanging at a branch, or perhaps it’s better to call it climbing. Oh wait, i realize that hanging is part of climbing too 🙂
Much fun to play with Nik collection. The last 2 are made with the Analog Efex plugin, really love that one!
This little slimy snail has become one of my favorite animals. Though in reality there is no such thing as a favorite animal, today i do like to bring an ode to this magnificent creature with a few images.
The Devils Marbles are located close to the Stuart Highway (the road between Darwin in the upper north and Melbourne in the south of Australia). It’s a sacred site to aboriginals
In the Aboriginal mythology the Devils Marbles are the eggs of the rainbow serpent, and many “dreamtime” stories and traditions of the Warumungu, Kaytetye and Alyawarre Aboriginal people are linked with this area. It has a deep spiritual meaning for both men and women (Aboriginal cultural sites are often specifically for either men or women.)
This place was simply incredible. It was nice weather when we got there and the sunshine made the marbles look extraordinairy. A nice anecdote btw: in the nighttime I wanted to go to the toilet, but the friend I was with told me that the toilet nearby was very dirty. So I decided to go to another toilet a couple of hundred meters away. But soon I got the feeling I was followed. I had a torchlight with me and when I look back, I looked straight into the face of a dingo. So I turned around lol
