Many thanks to those people – and there were a lot – who put in submissions to the relevant departments regarding mining on the Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary.
I believe about 700 submissions in all were received and I think a majority of them were against any sort of mining in the area.
However it’s early days yet. It will be interesting to see what comes out of it all.
Strange twist though…the Environment Minister announced, as submissions on Arkaroola’s future were closing, a new protected area, with no mining , on the Nullabor Plain. Figure that out.
To things more sublime – I posted a shot of Arkaroola Waterhole back in June last year link.
This was taken the same morning but using a different lens. The wide angle panorama changed the colours a bit and washed out the sky although I’m still happy with the outcome. I’d be interested to hear what others think.
