Mount Pilot – Jerun Terlaak

$75.00$690.00

“Mount Pilot offers fantastic 360 degree views and for many is a favourite location for a picnic, star gazing or scramble among the rocks. Given it’s size and elevation, it’s easy to imagine the significance of this site for the original inhabitants of the area and the early settlers in the 19th century. Whilst many before me would have looked far into the distance in all directions, it’s only now that we have the opportunity to look back down at this impressive batholith and explore it’s many captivating shapes and patterns that have formed over thousands of years.” – Jerun Terlaak

Description

Mount Pilot

Mount Pilot is a granite batholith, surrounded on its lower flanks by massive granite tors and giant boulders. Some of these boulders have cracked and fallen to create caves and galleries, which offered permanent shelter to the first Australians. Two separate rock art paintings of Thylacines, each probably more than 2000 years old, speak of the area’s ancient spiritual significance. The surrounding remnant box ironbark and cypress pine forests shelter dozens of rare and threatened species, from barking owls and regent honeyeaters, to squirrel gliders and brush-tailedphascogales (tuan). On the summit, rock pools filled with rain water reflect the sky, while the view across the Murray River plains stretches as far as the eye can see. – Jacqui Durrant


Jerun Terlaak

Inspired by photographers like Joel Sternfeld and Andreas Gursky, Jerun started taking photos in the late nineties. By the grace of his wife, he became proficient at developing film and prints, locked away in the tiny bathroom of their not much bigger flat in London. At the start of the millennium, the transition from film to digital led to a career in web and graphic design. Today Jerun tells stories through video and works as a photographer and content producer for a range of clients.
