Twilight at Mount Charlotte
Mount Charlotte–a small, unremarkable knoll on a bend in the road leading north out of Kalgoorlie–deep into the heart of Western Australia. A fist full of gold was found close by in 1893 unearthing one of the richest deposits on the planet. Today, twilight out the back of Mount Charlotte paints a nostalgic light. These are the gritty, dusty, often destitute landscapes of human endeavour that still today epitomise a boundless search for gold. But with climate change nipping at hour heels these once heroic vistas now seem to me to have a kind of sinister glow.
