Rainbow Valley at Sunrise

Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve, 65 miles south of Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia

known as "Wurre" by the local Twertentyeye Aboriginal tribe

Once every few years the outback of Central Australia gets a good downpour of rain

When this happens a lake forms near the Rainbow Valley escarpment and a mirror reflection can be observed

When I heard in mid January 2015 that the Alice Springs area had over 7 inches (200+mm) of rain I jumped on the next flight to the area and got this photo at sunrise on the last morning of my 3 day visit
