View from Picnic Point lookout

Taken from the lookout near Picnic Point, Toowoomba.

This interesting flat topped hill begged to be photographed, but I couldn't help but focussing on the foreground twigs just to be different ;)

    Why is it flat, David? Is it natural or man-made?
  • David de Groot said:
    Quite natural Margot, it's probably the remains of a volcanic core that's been weathered down over the millenia. We have a lot of that sort of thing out here, as none of our ex-volcanos have been active for several million years.

    yay! Toowomba! I've been here! :) Great area. I stayed w/ a farm family near here when I was studying abroad

    That would have been neat :)

    Ha ha, I live just near here. I go for a walk past this view almost every day! Good use of the tree branches - you did well to find something to use in the frame!

    I have a bit of a soft spot for Toowoomba. I lived there for 18 months or so working at the TAFE college. Used to live over behind the Lone Star.

    It's called Tabletop Mountain and the small rocky outcrop (visible behind the end of the lower branch) is called Camel's Hump.
