We had just settled into our campsite at Rawnsley Park Station in the Flinders Ranges. Gavin had organised a fire for the evening and the others had transitioned into r e l a x e d mode. and I was almost ready to join them.
We were at the base of a gully with a steep rise and ridge blocking our view to the west, the Elder Range and the sunset. Out of sight and of mind I’d almost given up on the sunset that night.
I looked at my watch, checked the sunset time, judged the effort to reach the top of the ridge and announced I was off.
Not to one to be left behind, Gavin lept to his feet, grabbed his camera and we were off on a race to the top.
