Took a photographer hunting pigs with me and he got this snapshot as I was giving him an anatomy lesson.

The Pinnacle

Absolute magic spot. I've climbed out to the tip of it two years in a row and plan to make it a yearly pilgrimage for myself from now on. Powerful vibes as you climb out along the neck of the Pinnacle and the view is amazing during the whole walk.

Yeah it's incredible out there... Especially to consider the aeons of time that volcanic rim has been witness to. This shot was taken from the very tip the same day. A hawk, a bee and a butterfly (can you spot it?) kept me company :)

Edit: Have rotated the photo, but how why is it smaller than everyone elses images?

Edit: I can't work out how to rotate the photo on my phone... will do it tomorrow on a computer

Great photo mate!

Every time I've been out on the tip it's been infested with bloody flies. Beautiful and silent the whole way out along the neck and then you hit the end and it's peak hour in the fly CBD, ha ha.

My aunty and uncle live near the base of The Pinnacle south of Tyalgum, I've always stared in awe at that great, hulking land mass since I was a wee lad so it was real special to find make my way up there last year... I had been wanting to my whole life. Only took me 30 odd years or so of living in the region.

Interesting little side note: my aunty told me a story recently that there is a cave underneath the Pinnacle and she knows two separate people that went in sane and completely normal, encountered a screaming, hostile spirit inside and came out absolutely haunted and were never the same since.

From what I can gather online, The Pinnacle (Wooroombin) is a powerful part of local aboriginal mythology and forms part of the sacred triangle with Mount Warning (Wollumbin) and Mount Burrell/Sphinx Rock (Njimbin Byorgin) to the south that sits on significant ley line/aboriginal song lines. My aunty also told me that they've seen lots of strange lights at night above the border ranges over the many years they have lived there. My aunty had a close encounter with a UFO a long time ago in the region also, scared the absolute shit out of her.

It definitely has a real powerful vibe to it, even without all the scary stories attached. Easily one of, if not my favourite part of the rainbow region.

Unfortunately someone has ripped out most of the big orchids that used to be along the pinnacle track. Plus a bushfire a couple years ago did some damage near the top too.

I plan to be there in a few days time actually and I'm hoping to get a pic of one of my favourites that no-one else has found yet so stay tuned for that.

Here's a pic of my 'pet' frog eating a cricket. He comes out on rainy nights and I feed him insects and spiders. As you can see it's about time I stopped as he has become quite obese. Who would have thought too many insects could make a frog so fat. :wacko:

Taken up bird photography in the last few months so I could likely flood this thread with little feathered things.

This is more a landscape thing though, early morning at Penrith weir.

When hitch hiking from nimbin to uki once, lysergised (bad idea...) i said to my friend "hey did you know Rainbow Country has the highest incidence of UFO sightings in Australia?" so we looked up. It is true.

This doesn't surprise me. The whole area operates on a different energetic level. Every time I visit the area I feel energised for days after I get home.

Here is a pic from the outskirts of the Joshua Tree National Park when I visited in 09:

The American (well, Californian) desert is a beautiful place.
