"Time is Dashing" that's my little pun for the day. Day twelve and my break is half way over, wanting to make the most of my time but not travel to far I was wracking my brain for a good photographic trip for the day, eventually the Dasher River popped into my head. The Dasher is a tributary of the Mersey and this spot is at the lower end of a gorge between Sheffield and Kimberley.
Donning a pair of waders, taking just one lens and a tripod I was aiming to get up stream to the mouth of the gorge. I didn't quite make it, I chickened out and decided to wait till I had some company, before crashing through the bush and rocks above the river (which was to slippery and deep to wade with a camera).
Geologically I find this spot quit interesting, there's a Fault (the steep smooth solid rock wall of the lower gorge) as well as Contact (thermal) Metamorphism relating to tertiary basalt events plus the rocks have lovely colours & patterns.
