My response to the Word a Week Challenge: Mountain http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2013/05/12/a-word-a-week-challenge-mountain/
I love Mt Warning in Northern NSW up near the Queensland border. It is the first place on the Australian mainland to receive the light of the morning sun. The aboriginal people consider it a sacred place and call it Wollumbin which means ‘cloud catcher.’
The mountain is a volcanic core that dominates the caldera created by a volcano when it exploded 21 million years ago. The photo above was taken at The Pinnacles, a high lookout in the mountains that ring the caldera.
There is something magical about the mountain and it has a magnetic presence. Although I no longer live in its vicinity I find it sometimes appears in my dreams. It even creeps in my art work from time to time.
