"I heard a maiden singing ..."

"Early one morning, just as the sun was rising,
I heard a maiden singing in the valley below;


O don't deceive me, O do not leave me!
How could you use a poor maiden so?"

Edith Falls, Northern Territory, somewhat a photographer's paradise!

You see, I wasn't actually stalking - so engrossed in communing with nature that I thought at first it was a bird of a different feather

A favourite swimming hole for visitors - fancy a dip? Crocodile traps further down stream catch most of the Crocs
3.

This is further downstream where traps are set - it simply isn't true that pommie tourists are used as bait
4.

The Lower Pool is a popular swimming hole for the many visitors at the Edith Falls Caravan Park

Nice and as for bait do you want all your crocodiles eaten? That's why the only ones left over here are in zoos. They are nice in a stew washed down with a Guinness!

They are a protected species Ed. Don't ask me why. They are in plague proportions and as far as the Crocs are concerned the arrangement isn't reciprocal. Recently at Kakadu NP a man got eaten by one.

Re: "... I heard a maiden singing ..."

I was looking through your set thinking "that looks kinda familiar... " and after a bit of digging through my traveling archive I think I have a match! These are from 2004 when we were passing through NT on our grand tour around Australia.

(Please forgive the quality, these were taken with a film camera made by a little company called "Canon" and then printed and scanned again!)

Looks familiar??



and you were saying about crazy people swimming... here's me diving in!

A match indeed, Tim - it's a great swimming hole, especially in the heat, isn't it!

Yup, I do remember it well we it was one of the few places that far North where we dared to go swimming because a) we'd heard it was free from crocs and b) there were lots of other people there already!

We were there in winter and that was still warm enough for me, wouldn't fancy it in summer!

Re: "... I heard a maiden singing ..."

Very pretty spot Mark - I remember it well, but we most certainly didn't swim there having just heard a story about a croc that had been found way up high in a gorge that previously had been considered impossible for crocs to reach.
Another death trap (literally) are some of the fords that you cross in cars. The crocs know that people wade out (and also stupidly fish from the fords) to test the depth. Crocs don't need much water at all, and they move very, very fast!

It's an interesting situation in which Crocs apparently find us as tasty as we do them. (Croc Burger)

Re: "... I heard a maiden singing ..."

I only observed 'Gators and Indians "wrestling" them, on a reservation ! those that did not wrestle well, got eaten and their hide made into shoes and handbags and Cowboy Boots

BUT HECK can they RUN fast very very fast !

Personally, I prefer Ostrich ... to eat and handbags and Cowboy boots too

Nice images Mark Keep 'em coming

Re: "... I heard a maiden singing ..."

What an adventure - we didn't get north or west on our visit and I would like to venture into Kakadu but with most of the family in South Australia and a few in Queensland I think it more likely we will return there if we do make another trip.

Regards,
Ann1e

With family in SA and QLD you would be well placed to visit the NT, Annie - it shouldn't be missed. How it took me this long to make it is beyond me!
