Lake Mungo NP NSW: Dusk falls over the Walls of China. It’s the best time to make photographs at Mungo—after the sun’s hard light dissolves into warm afterglow in the western sky, bathing the eroded forms of the lunettes.
Subtle pinks and mauves tinge the sediments and the landscape becomes otherworldly. Luminous.
Lake Mungo is in the Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area and is one of Australia’s richest archaeological sites, where the remains of Mungo Man and Mungo Lady, and fossilised footprints dating back to the last ice age have been discovered.
