The Lost City of Bukalara, Northern Territory - Australia

About this artwork
This incredible maze of fascinating ancient sandstone rock formations, created by millions of years of erosion, is approximately 46km south of Borroloola, on the western extremity of the Bukalara Range in the Northern Territory. Located in the Caranbirini Nature Reserve, these majestic sandstone towers reach up above the vegetation to 25 metres like a lost city of nature's temples, providing a vivid contrast in colour and shape to the surrounding countryside. Wandering the track and crossing a lily-carpeted billabong, you will be delighted by magnificent views across the escarpment country of the Gulf Region. There is a possibility you may be greeted by the nervously alert Carpentaria Grass Wren, running and hopping about in the rocky environment, hiding in overhanging spinifex clumps, or maybe the Gouldian Finch or the endemic Borroloola Gecko.

Phil Gray is often referred to as Australia's first panoramic photographer. For Phil, the accepted boundaries in photography have only ever been a challenge to his creative ingenuity. While many photographers are now employing wide-angle cameras in the production of their landscape photography, only Phil Gray produces true panoramas – up to and including a full 360 degrees. With his amazing panoramic camera and helicopter mount, both made to his specifications, Phil has given the world a totally new way of seeing the grandeur, beauty and spectacle of Australia. One of Australia's most respected commercial photographers, and with two superb books to his credit, Phil's masterful panoramic views of Australia are the crowning achievement in a career which has earned him world-wide acclaim.
