Extra Perspective

Woolumbin 200kms away: Taken from the Washpool National Park.


Woolumbin 50 kms away:


The Aboriginal Peoples of the Bundjalung Nation called it Woolumbin (Cloud Catcher/Rain Maker).
In 1770 Captain Cook named it Mt Warning as he passed by in a ship to warn future mariners of an offshore reef.
It is an ancient volcano and these 2 shots give a differing perspective of this ancient and iconic extinct volcano.
More and more people refer to it as Woolumbin these days, a much more interesting name than Cook's.

This is a Friday Skywatch post. Click here for more heavenly views.

First shot is mine: thanks to M0les/Lupo for image 2.

  4. Love those layers and colours in the first shot! Woolumbin's profile is unmistakeable - and so impressive, it's hard to believe I've climbed it twice!!

  9. Love your first photo, the blue mountains, gorgeous.
    I got a similar one in Switzerland back in 1981, they look three dimensional.
    The second shot is beautiful too.
