King's Pyramid is a 500 ft high hill that gave its name to the pastoral lease known as Pyramid Station. The station is situated in the east Pilbara region of Western Australia.
It's a hot day in the Pilbara and that tree is looking like an inviting place from where to view the hill. So I've got two choices: I can sit under the tree or in the shade of the tree but not under the shade of the tree unless I was underground. But that's not what I want to do. This image is so much better by standing where I can view the tree and the hill. The tree and the spinifex clumps in the foreground are a pattern of domes receding to a pyramid of enduring rock. I like that change. The sky is clear and without blemish. Without the tree the hill would loose its dramatic impact. So I stand in the sun and take this photo... then I sit in the shade of the tree.
In the shade of the old Pyramid tree
I was in spinifex right up to my knee
I had to lay down while she was around
'Til only my knees you could see
Bush flies was biting my nose
And the magpies was nibbling my toes
I lay there all day 'til she went away
