They are rocky ban(?) slopes, unique in their colourings of deep purple. These ranges appear to have a shroud of purple haze. Surrounding country is flat and bare ghost gums grow along dried up creeks. A few stunted trees are in foreground. Creek bed [to the right.] Scene of a picnic resulting in much sunburn."
