Goyder's Pillar, North Simpson Desert, Northern Territory, Australia. Named after George W Goyder, who was the government Surveyor General from 1861-1863. The sun sets spectacularly red on Goyder’s Pillar.
We crossed the North Simpson Desert and camped at Batton Hill, with traditional owner Lindsay Bookie. Lindsay took us for a short drive to Goyder’s Pillar, but with the skies heavily clouded we did not expect to get a photo. Suddenly the Pillar turned red for about 30 seconds as small gap in the clouds opened up. July 2005.
